Beaches to the East
Leave your cares behind, pack your flip flops and head for the beach. With more than 300 miles of barrier island beaches, two national seashores and dozens of enchanting towns, the unspoiled landscape of the North Carolina coast is made for relaxation. Explore lighthouses on the beaches, rivers and sounds. Taste superb seafood caught the same day. Witness the beauty of wild horses and native wildlife, visit places steeped in Revolutionary and Civil War history or just enjoy the sand between your toes. And best of all, Legacy Lakes is close enough for day trips or weekend getaways.
