Our trip to Onslow County in North Carolina was my most memorable adventures this year! You might know it for Jacksonville (home of Camp Lejeune) or North Topsail Beach...but Swansboro was my favorite town in the area, and it is where we recommend you stay.
One of the highlights of our stay in Onslow was experiencing a yacht cruise on New River in Jacksonville, NC with Bayonet Enterprises. Here are three reasons we think you need to try this on your Onslow visit!
Our family was thrilled to spend an afternoon with Marsh Cruises during our recent visit to Swansboro NC. Marsh offers a variety of affordable options to take you and your friends/family on a guided tour like none other around the beautiful coastal waters of Swansboro and the Emerald Isles. We opted for the Eco Adventure…
If you're looking for great "unexpected" Onslow, then here are your best bets. From tasty tours like Walton's to delicious dinners like those at Mike's...these are worth a stop!
Hammocks Beach State Park showcases some of the most beautiful coastal terrain that North Carolina has to offer. At the heart of this gorgeous landscape is Bear Island, a remote, non-inhabited beach accessible only by boat where you can spend the day, or overnight in one of their primitive campsites.
Onslow County includes a number of cities that each bring something unique and fun, but Historic Swansboro was our favorite. The vibe, the restaurants, the shops...the location right on the water...it was picture-perfect!
If you're looking for a wide beach, with beautiful surf, few people, and great rental options...let me introduce you to North Topsail Beach in Onslow County. It is gorgeous - without the crowds of other beaches in the area! Pack your beach gear - let's go!
