Attractions

Take the Fort Fisher Ferry (which is 2 miles south of the condo) over to the town of Southport for the day. It's a very old waterfront town with many shops. Great for just walking around and browsing through the shops. When you are there, you must eat at The Provision Company. Right on the water, not fancy, but it's the hottest spot in Southport. Plan to wait 30-60 mins minimally, but it's worth it. You can drink beers while you wait and it's on the honor system! Yes, at the end of your meal you tell them how many beers you grabbed from the fridges during your time there. Make sure the weather is nice for Southport.

The NC aquarium is about a mile south of the condo. The kids will really love this place! Great thing to do on a rainy day. They say in Kure Beach, if you don't like the weather, wait 15 minutes. It's true. It can pour down rain for ten minutes and be gorgeous rest of day so watch the forecasts.

The oldest pier on the Atlantic coast. If you like to fish, bring poles! There will be tons of people fishing off the pier. You can purchase passes to fish at the pier house. If fishing isn't your thing, it's still a must to walk on and say you've been there. Say hello to George the famous pelican. He has a metal band on his leg, he will be there! They also have live music by the pier in the summer, I think Sunday nights.

Wilmington. It's a good 40 minutes away, but if you wanna get off the island for a day, it's very nice. It's all riverfront shops and restaurants. You can take a small boat tour, have ice cream or eat at Elijah's. Elijah's is pricey so watch out.

Restaurants

Hands down best restaurant on the island. Make reservations. It's old school Italian and famous for pork chops. It's small, dimly lit and cozy. You won't find a bad thing on the menu, for real. The German chocolate cake (if they have any left) is AMAZING. They close early, so check times.

Bars

My favorite place! Decent drinks, but hands down best atmosphere. You will feel like you're in paradise. The Tiki bar is located on what remains of a pier that was destroyed by a hurricane in the 90's. Go there in shorts and a tee or right in your bathing suits!

It's the most famous bar there. I'm not a huge fan, but you have to go to say you've been. It's one of those places. You walk into a giant beer cooler and select from hundreds of beers and then proceed to the register to pay.
