EMERALD ISLE, N.C. — A North Carolina beach has been featured on a recent list of “16 can’t-miss U.S. beaches.”

CNN recently published the list, which took a look at some of the country’s “most inviting beaches for inspiration.”

Here’s what they said about Emerald Isle:

“Emerald Isle is located on the western half of the Bogue Banks barrier island of the Southern Outer Banks. The family-orientated beach community offers vacation rentals galore.”

Emerald Isle is more than three hours from the Greensboro/High Point area.
