The traffic on Rt 12 is bumper to bumper there most weekends and there is always traffic on Rt 12. There is a crosswalk but you must be careful, wait for traffic to stop to let you cross and there will be no problems. Accidents there are rare.

We have stayed on the same road in a house around the corner and as the previous poster mentioned, there can be a lot of traffic; however, we never found that we had too much trouble crossing the road to the beach. You might have to wait a few minutes at most to cross NC12.

I love that area as it is very close to the grocery stores and you don't get stuck in traffic like some other areas since you don't have far to go from N Croatan Hwy to your rental.

Thanks for your feedback we have some teens with us and we were concerned about them going to the beach alone... Thanks again
