Food Scene
The Ocean Grill is the only oceanfront dining option in Carolina Beach - and it's walking distance to Pelican Watch! The food is quite delicious with a focus on local ingredients. The Tiki Bar is a great place to grab a drink, enjoy the view, and they also serve food but it is a limited menu option. They will sometimes have live music and that always makes for a great night on the beach.

This is a must for any CB vacationers. The best biscuits and pies on the island! If there is someone looking to earn a few brownie points, offer to pick up breakfast from this spot and bring it back. Your friends and family will very much appreciate you. One of my favorites is the homemade Oatmeal Creme Pie.

This is a great family-friendly restaurant in downtown Kure Beach. Every Thursday night they have a Prime Rib that will blow your mind! Matter of fact, I don't even like Prime Rib, and I go out of my way to get some of theirs! It's even good if you get it to go and bring it back to enjoy on your oceanfront deck!

You can't ever go wrong with fried dough and glaze - and trust me when I tell you it tastes even better at the beach! This place is on the boardwalk and is famous. They only serve 1 kind of donut, but it's guaranteed to be hot and fresh now. Krispy Kreme has met its match in my opinion.

Sightseeing
Until the last few months of the Civil War, Fort Fisher kept North Carolina's port of Wilmington open to blockade-runners supplying necessary goods to Confederate armies inland. By 1865, the supply line through Wilmington was the last remaining supply route open to Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia. When Ft. Fisher fell after a massive Federal amphibious assault on January 15, 1865, its defeat helped seal the fate of the Confederacy
