We have a house rented in Oak Island for a week in April and was hoping I could get some local perspective on things to do. Looking for advice on restaurants to hit, outdoor activities, things to do with kids, etc. We used to live near Wilmington and the beaches so pretty familiar with the general area but never spent much time down at Oak Island. Probably not too interested in heading into the Myrtle Beach madness either.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions
Swain Seafood Shack
Over in Southport:
or drive to Calabash
About the only entertainment is Putt Putt -
Shallotte River Swamp Park
USS North Carolina in Wilmington
Aquarium at Fort Fisher and then go see the remains of the fort.
There is also Ft Caswell on Oak Island
Or if you feel like a day trip - go to New Bern about 2 hours away and see Tryon Palace - not sure about operating hours for the Wubonic Plague.
take a trip down to the summerville sc and visit palmetto state armory stores they actually had 9 mm one box limit per day per cal.. and actually had weapons and the place was mobbed.. Savannah ga was smaller but as well stocked and not as busy..
