    Help...please.

    We are going to be taking a vacation to North Carolina. We will be going to see my husbands friend in Garner, but the kids want to go to the Beach. It looks likes the closest (from what I can tell) would be Wilmington. (i have never been there)

    Has anyone been there? Any good places to see, or stay or do with kids? Any suggestions would be fabulous.

        Sara, I have been to North Carolina, but just on the edge. Was only there about two hours. We went over in to North Carolina when we visited Gatlinburg Tennesee. We just ate lunch in North Carolina. We drove on the Blue Ridge Parkway. I would suggest going through Smoky Mountain National Park if you have never seen the Smoky Mountains. Other than that I don't know much about North Carolina, but I hope you have a wonderful time.

                I'm sure that I can find something...since I live in Huntsville I'm in a 2 hour radius of some of the best cities in the south...

                Tupelo
                Nashville
                Chattanooga
                Huntsville

                and of course there's always my trailer. We have a "vacation home on wheels" that we keep at my house...so it serves as the guest house when we have company.

                did we ever do a thread asking where everyone is? wonder if the "mother ship" (MSQC) would be interested in setting up a retreat weekend with classes and such in MO? THAT would be a kickin' trip!!

                    My husband's daughter lived in N.C. at one time. We went on vacation and visited Wilmington, it's a nice town althought I home you don't have the same excitement that we had while we were there (tornado). They had a nice shopping (and I'm not much of a shopper) downtown. We spent the day at Wrightsfield Beach which is not too far from there and it was beautiful. The ocean was a calm beautiful azure. It reminded me of CanCun.
