Hi, all! I have read some interesting and differentiating opinions about CB on these forums, and I am wondering if I am able to get a little more advice about where to stay or what to do. My fiance is in the military and going on his second deployment this April for a 9-10 month tour. He is stationed in Bragg, I currently reside in our hometown phx, az for school, and we are looking for a weekend getaway that is relaxing, inexpensive, quiet, not too far of a drive since I will be traveling all day and also beautiful. I was able to find a deal on Courtyard Marriot for an inexpensive 3 day stay at CB. However, I am not 100% sure about this location based on what we have been finding review wise. I did look at myrtle beach, but I have heard that is very touristy and we dont really want that feel, plus it is a little further of a drive as well. Also, charleston would be wonderful, but that too is far, and much more expensive even in the off season. I have been hearing good things about Topsail? I guess I am just looking for the perfect place for one of our last memories together until 2014. This will be our first time to the NC coast, so any advice would be really wonderful! Thank you so much for your time!
