These 10 Coastal Towns In North Carolina Are Unbelievably Unique

North Carolina is packed to the brim with charming small towns that seem to have been plucked straight from your favorite novel (some actually are). But the Coastal Plains are home to some of the most unique small towns, with salt in the air, water views, and plenty of boats. While some listed are merely a road and some Cypress Trees, they’re all home to unique attractions, and one is so obscure you can’t even find it on a map. If you’re planning a beach trip, make sure to add these 10 towns to your day trip itinerary.

Talk about unique, it seems each one of these towns has a shining gem or awesome (and/or delicious) reason to visit. Have you been to any of these towns before – or call one of them home?
