Fort Fisher State Recreation Area

Enjoy miles of pristine beaches, salt marshes, and scenic views in every direction with a visit to Fort Fisher State Recreation Area. Located just south of Kure Beach, and renowned for its 6 miles of undeveloped shoreline, this sunny beach destination is one of the most popular state parks in North Carolina, and offers miles of fun around every corner.

While visitors can easily spend the day enjoying hours of shelling, fishing, and enjoying the sunshine, there are a number of other attractions besides the beach basics to lure vacationers to pay a visit. A 1.1 mile Basin Trail is located on-site, which passes by a WWII bunker and ends at an observation deck, and the calmer marsh waters are ideal for a range of watersports, including kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding. A Visitors Center is also located on-site which is filled with a wealth of local information, and the park rangers regularly hold informational programs for visitors, which includes Shell Strolls, Turtle Talks, and Surf Fishing Basics. With literally dozens of ways to have fun, and miles of shoreline to go around, Fort Fisher State Recreation Area is a must-see destination for beach lovers who want to kick off their flip flops and simply enjoy the scene.

Sunset Beach

Sunset Beach is a unique little North Carolina coastal destination that encompasses both mainland and barrier island terrain, and is located just a seashell's throw from the South Carolina border. Despite its proximity to larger destinations like Wilmington, NC to the north and Myrtle Beach, SC to the south, the community has never lost its small town charm, and its decidedly beachy atmosphere, making it an ideal destination for laid back vacationers who want to soak up the salt, the sun, and the endless ocean views.

Cape Fear Vacation Rentals

Cape Fear Vacation Rentals

The Cape Fear area – from Wilmington to Southport – is brimming with accommodation options. With a far-reaching range of campgrounds, motels and hotels, and resorts, visitors will find no shortage of places to stay, regardless of whether their geographical interests are close to the beach, the historic downtowns, or the idyllic middle of nowhere. With that being said, visitors who are planning to come to the Cape Fear region for a long weekend or more – or who are arriving with a large party – will want to consider staying at a vacation home. Especially popular all along the regional beach towns, and scattered throughout the area, a vacation home or vacation rental can provide visitors with all the amenities they need, (and then some), to enjoy a fabulous stay and an exploration of everything that the Cape Fear area has to offer.
