A nice place near decent beach and restaurants is all l need. Went to North Myrtle for years, along with Hilton Head island and the Outer Banks. HH is really nice but a longer drive for us. Did Cape Cod last year and visited Chappaquiddick.
Wrightsville Beach is nice and youve got Wilmington right over the bridge for even more restaurants, microbreweries and such. Parkings an issue if you want to hit any of the places in the little downtown section of Wrightsville on the barrier island, though. Youd want to rent a house within walking distance or have bicycles. The water there is very blue.
