People are choosing NC beaches but not just Wilmington! Having grown up on the northern beaches of NC, what a surprise when moving inland to find how people choose from all our beach destinations and how they decide which is their destination beach. Those choices are often rooted in their first early beaches that they have always gone to over the years. Recently clients that just moved to the area and having some free time before closing on their new home and starting new jobs, they asked about where to go to the beach for a day trip. Sent them information on 5 different and distinct NC beach areas with a caveat warning that where they go to 1st might just become their beach of choice! The information included: distinct features and attractions, great restaurant and shopping areas, what the ocean is like at that part of the coast, and drive time from Raleigh. Guess what? They did NOT choose Wilmington! The beach they choose was perfect for them as they said they loved it and they are planning to go back!
