Closest Beaches to Raleigh

I am heading to Raliegh to visit with my daughter and have one or two nights to spend at the beach. Which is the closest beaches to Raleigh? also, which place to stay that is directly on the beach?

Wrightsville is the closest beach, about 2 hours door to door. The City of Wilmington, a port town on the coast, is right next to Wrightsville.

Good on the beach hotels are the Holiday Inn Sunspree, the Blockade Runner, which have restaurants and amenities, etc. and Shell Island, which is a condo/rental place at the end of the island.

It's about 2 hours and 15 minutes to Topsail Island.

Oceanfront accommodations that I would recommend are the Villa Capriani and the St. Regis Resort, both of which are in North Topsail Beach.

Other nice places are the Island Inn and Tiffany's. They are not on the beach but Island Inn is just across from it and Tiffany's is a block or so away.
