The Christmas Tree Trail In Kure Beach Is Like Walking In A North Carolina Winter Wonderland
Although the higher elevations on the western side of North Carolina have a good chance of enjoying a white Christmas each year, for many in the Tar Heel State, the notion of being in a winter wonderland during the holidays can be achieved by other means. Over in Kure Beach, for instance, the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher has teamed up with the Lower Cape Fear Hospice for a magical Festival of Trees set among the aquarium’s stunning exhibits.
