Head to the Atlantic Beach Boardwalk to explore some of the town’s best shopping opportunities and tasty restaurants. Another notable spot is the Oceana Fishing Pier, one of the best places for fishing on the Crystal Coast and features impressive views of the ocean.
Just a short drive away from the Atlantic Beach Boardwalk and Oceana Fishing Pier is Fort Macon State Park, the most popular state park in North Carolina. Fort Macon State Park has something for everyone to enjoy, the restored fort, swimming, fishing, and more. It’s well worth spending a day visiting.
