The North Carolina coast is a hidden gem filled with adventure and unforgettable experiences! Come feel the excitement, feast on the region’s culinary delights, and relax in accommodations that range from large hotels to quaint rentals by the beach. Whatever type of getaway you’re looking for, we have it here on the North Carolina coast. Not sure what area to stay in? Here’s a look at our beloved coastline broken down into three regions: The Northern Coast, Central Coast, and Southern Coast.

 The Northern Coast offers adventure and some of the state’s most popular historical monuments, including the Wright Brothers National Memorial, home of the first successful airplane flight. In fact, this region is home to the world’s oldest and largest hang gliding school and the largest kite store on the east coast, Kitty Hawk Kites, located in Nags Head. Interested in more Outer Banks history, nature and recreation? Head over to Roanoke Island Festival Park, a 25-acre interactive historic site representing the first English settlement attempt in 1585. Don’t miss out on the area’s delectable seafood selection. Whether you want to fish offshore or just relax at an outdoor patio and dine on fresh seafood from local waters, you won’t want to miss the NC seafood experience. Want more adventure? If you are looking for the best surfing North Carolina has to offer look no further than Kitty Hawk, or travel a bit further south and head to Cape Hatteras, an outdoor adventure enthusiast’s playground. Click here to start planning your trip to the Northern Coast.

If you are looking for a romantic and historical escape, look no further than the Central Coast. Tour Tryon Palace, North Carolina’s first permanent state capitol. This unique and picturesque place offers visitors the chance to experience the adventure of North Carolina’s earliest beginnings. Guided tours, live re-enactments and conversations with costumed interpreters from centuries past bring history to life in vivid detail at the Governor’s Palace, Gardens and Historic Homes. If you’re a military history buff, you won’t want to miss the Lejeune Memorial Gardens in Onslow County, home to thousands of America’s fiercest fighters: United States Marines. From quaint waterfront restaurants and hotels in Swansboro and New Bern to small town experiences in an area rich with tradition and pride, the Central Coast offers something for everyone.

Last but certainly not least is the Southern Coast. Take a family trip to Wilmington to tour the Battleship North Carolina and build your own personal experience by steering the ship, starting the engines, or firing the guns. Enjoy a relaxing beach weekend with the family at Topsail beach! If you’re a wine lover, this region is home to the muscadine grape and wine, a varietal we’re known for in North Carolina. Once again, the NC Coast is known for seafood and good ol’ Southern cooking – especially barbecue. From fried shrimp to a pulled pork sandwich, a North Carolina staple, this region has it all! Whether you’re looking for relaxation that includes kayaking or paddle boarding the waterways or a more bustling beach experience, the Southern Coast offers something for everyone.
