Holden Beach Question

My wife has to do some work in Wilmington, NC so I am going to find a beach house so I can help her out by laying on the beach while she works. I seem to be liking some of the houses on Holden Beach better than the other area close by. My question is, how long does it take to drive from Holden to Wilmington? I am sure in late May there will be "tourist" traffic but don't want to get in a situation where it takes hours.

Of course it depends on what part of Wilmington you're going to, but generally somewhere around 45 minutes give or take. Not a ridiculous commute, but there are other options that are closer--namely Topsail, Wrightsville, Carolina, and Kure beaches.
