Wrightsville Beach Magazine (the local authority on all things having to do with living near Wrightsville Beach!) recently printed an article on Paddleboarding. Not familiar with paddleboarding? Visit any local surf shop and they’ll be happy to bring you up to speed. What an incredible way to visit the tidal creeks around the Wilmington area, not to mention the exercising aspect of the sport.

Yes, I know the beach and vacation (or stay-cation) seem to go together like peanut butter and jelly, but most of us who live in the Wilmington area take the area beaches for granted. From Topsail Beach (pronounced Top-sull, for our northern friends) all the way down to Oak Island, the beaches offer what everyone is searching for on a stay-cation, respite from a hectic day. It’s no secret that when you hit the beach chair with your favorite book, or even sit and watch the ocean, all your worries fade away.
If you’re planning a last minute summer get-away Orbitz named Wrightsville Beach a bargin in this article.
So tell us, which of our many beaches is your favorite escape?

Another joy of living in Coastal Carolina is the ability to plan a fabulous stay-cation. In fact, it is such a popular idea around here that I’ve heard friends say that they have to force themselves to leave “paradise” in order to find another paradise.
But maybe you’re newer to the area, and want to discover all we have to offer. Or maybe you have family or friends coming to visit you since you moved near the beach. The Wilmington, North Carolina area has so much to offer beside the beaches. Perhaps it’s time to see the area through the eyes of a tourist!
We would love to spotlight each attraction individually and want your input on your favorite haunts, sites and area’s must-dos! If you live in the area, please comment with your favorite space or place. If you’ve visited our area, what attraction did you enjoy the most?

One of the coolest things about living on or near Wrightsville Beach, or even visiting the area for that matter, is the “The Loop”.
The Loop is a dedicated sidewalk, about 2.5 miles around that is not only a jogging, running, walking, strolling, skating route, but also happens to be a gathering place.
Starting just past the bridge onto the beach, it encompasses the Wrightsville Beach park as well as the downtown area of the beach. Morning or evening, good weather or bad, you’ll always see some sort of activity on The Loop. Residents and visitors alike have shown great respect for the cleanliness and upkeep of The Loop, making it a great place to walk the dog (as long as you clean up) and children (again, clean up) alike.
So popular, we even came across a Facebook Page dedicated to The Loop that shares activities and interests. You can “like” the page at www.Facebook.com/wbloop.
The next time you visit The Loop, be sure to let us know how you enjoyed it!
