The aquarium is 4 miles south of the condo. The kids will really love this place! Great thing to do on a rainy day. They say in Carolina Beach, if you don’t like the weather, wait ten minutes. It’s true. It can pour down rain for ten minutes and be gorgeous the rest of the 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 30 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 any of the restaurants.

Restaurants

Hands down the 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. They close early, so check times.

Bars

My favorite place on the island! 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 suit.

It’s the most famous bar here. 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 register to pay.
