The Incredibly Unique Park That’s Right Here In North Carolina’s Own Backyard

When it comes to the beach, we mainly think of sandy dunes, crashing waves, and a palm tree or two. Rarely do we think of the coastal ecosystem that encompasses the sound, marsh, and tideland forests. While the beach will always be beautiful, there’s exquisite beauty hiding behind the shore and sand. One such place that introduces you to this unique environment is the 761 acre Carolina Beach State Park.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
