It’s summer, we can’t miss going to the beach! We’ve been to Myrtle and Hilton Head in SC in the past, we’ve lived in NC for over 5 years and we’ve never been to NC beach!
So finally, we’ve decided to go to Carolina Beach with friends. We booked this Airbnb, for two nights, it’s about 7 miles to the beach. This house is beautiful and host was super friendly and very accommodating!
Once we were settled, we headed to Carolina Beach. Thankful for the sun, the weather forecast said it was going to be rainy the whole weekend.
We spent a couple hours chilling at the beach and waited til it was almost sunset.
Such a beautiful sight.
Then we got hungry so we headed out.
Randy found A&G Barbecue & Chicken via Yelp. It’s a mom & pop’s restaurant with good old southern comfort food, yummy!
Then, we walked around Carolina Beach Boardwalk.
We tried to get Britt’s donuts but it was cash only, which we didn’t have. We decided to call it a night and come back for donuts the next day.
Friends came the following day, and we went to Kure Beach.
Randy and I got lost trying to figure out where to go. We stopped at Battle Acre Road. The view was fantastic!
Apparently the picnic area where you can bbq was just around the corner.
We had a fantastic lunch!
Then we spent the rest of the afternoon at the beach, doing yoga and doing nothing. It was one fine day.
Then, when we were ready for dinner, we tried going to Shuckin’ Shack, but it was full at 6.30PM. Then we saw Havana’s Restaurant just across the street, we opted for that. I am glad we did!
We thought we were a little underdressed cause we were just at the beach, we asked to be seated at the patio.
Randy and I chose Calamari for appetizer.
Randy had scallops as main. I had fried oysters. Everything was delicioso! 👌🏻
After dinner, we went back to the boardwalk to finally get Britts Donut.
There was a long line outside, when we finally got to try it, not sure what the fuss is all about. But well, they’ve been here for 75 years so it was still worth a try. It tasted like old fashioned donut. They only had glazed and nothing else.
Then we called it a night.
Next day, we bid farewell to this amazing Airbnb.
We stopped by Wilmington’s waterfront park, where we can see the USS Battleship. It was a nice day to stroll the park.
And got ice cream from Kilwins before heading home.
