HI....looking for a "new" beach experience! Have stayed many times at Topsail Island, which we still love, but we are wanting to explore new areas. Last year we went to Nags Head, Ocracoke, Kitty Hawk, etc. Loved it, but want to explore further. This year it will just be my husband and me. We like to sit/stroll on the beach and of course swim in the ocean. I love beachcombing. We plan to stay in a motel instead of renting a house since it is just the two of us - we don't need that much space. We also enjoy shopping at local shops/crafts and eating at local restaurants. Considering Ocean Isle but are open to suggestions that might be a better "fit." We are not much on the "night scene" or chain beach stores. Definitely NOT the Myrtle Beach scene. ANY help, insight from the locals or any of you who have "been there, done that" would be GREATLY appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
