Explore North Carolina's Shoreline
Enjoy the NC Coast With the Family
North Carolina’s coastal region is a stretch of land comprised of many fun and exciting family friendly adventures.
From Hammocks Beach, to Fort Macon State Park, there are a variety of options for you and the family on your visit to the Tar Heel State.
One of the northeastern most cities in North Carolina is Kill Devil Hills. Set just inland of the Atlantic Ocean, Kill Devil Hills is a can’t-miss destination for traveling families.
Check out Professor Hacker’s Lost Treasure Golf for an afternoon full of exciting mini-golf action – just try not to three-putt.
South of Kill Devil Hills is New Bern, a fun and charming city set just along the Neuse River. Pack up the kiddos and head to Island Creek Trail for an enjoyable family hike, or take it slow and walk the nearly half-mile loop. Travel in from nearby Swansboro, or Greenville and take in all the splendid, natural beauty.
Deeper south along the coast is Wilmington. A quaint city intersected by the Cape Fear River, Wilmington is another sterling example of southern hospitality. Be sure to take the kids for an exploration of the Cape Fear Serpentarium, or take a tour of the USS North Carolina, a retired World War II battleship.
For a day at the beach, don’t miss out on a visit to Swansboro, a fine city and home to Hammocks Beach State Park. Visit for the day with a drive in from Swansboro. At the beach, let the kids frolic in the sand, or splash around in the water.
