Beaches in N.Carolina

last year Ive been to Edisto Island,S.Carolina and Ive enjoyed it very much. This summer Id like to stay in N.Carolina. Is there any place similar to Edisto where I can rent a condo and will be able to make daytrips? I dont like crowded places nevertheless I like to go out for dinner..
Ill be grateful for any help

Dear Miriam,
We have never stayed on Edisto Island, but we have on Ocean Isle, N.C. Ocean Isle has little commerical development other than housing. Many good places to dine at Calabash and Mytle Beach is an easy drive. It served us well until we started going to Gulf Shores, Ala. and Destin, Fla. instead of traveling east. We like the Gulf better than the Atlantic. Please note that we have not been to Ocean Isle in about 8 years, but we did like it very much then.

Ocean Isle is a great place with a textbook Carolina beach (I think these are the best in the world). It is mostly beach houses though, and you do have to drive off the island for dinner.
Wrightsville Beach at Wilmington, N.C. has lots of dining and entertainment options while still remaining a nice beach (not too overdeveloped) but tends to be pretty expensive for lodging. But then, you also have historic Wilmington nearby (20 minutes) which as a pretty nice riverfront area (though it is certainly no Savannah or Charleston).

I second Wrightsville Beach. Great dining, great history around the area, gorgeous azaleas as we speak.
Another island that is a well kept secret is Sunset Beach...very similar to Ocean Isle. But, you do have to drive to eat out.

shhhhh. Wilmington and the Cape Fear River area are on my short list for retirement areas. What's not to like? Close to wonderful beach, historic river front, good restaurants, university....

All of the recommended places are much more crowded than Emerald Isle, NC, which remains a well-kept secret - near to good restaurants, beautiful uncrowded beaches all summer long and even better in Sept. & Oct. - check out the Emerald Isle Realty website for rental information.
