USA Today has put together a travel guide of the 10 best beaches in the Carolinas.
If you thought Myrtle Beach would be number one, you’d be wrong. Wrightsville Beach here in North Carolina tops the list.
“The shape of the coast at Wrightsville Beach, north of the Cape Fear River, creates ideal waves that attract surfers from all over the East Coast,” according to the article. “The town of Wrightsville Beach has enough stuff to find everything you need without all the tourist traps you don’t particularly want.”
Myrtle Beach, S.C.; Hilton Head Island, S.C. and Corolla Beach, N.C. all followed, respectively.
It’s not the first time North Carolina has been credited with having nice beaches. CNN recently published a list of the “10 secret beaches worth discovering.” Carova Beach in the Outer Banks made that list.
