Known for its largest freshwater lake, Carolina Beach is one of the favorite places of beach-goers visiting the northern side of Carolina. Located 15 mi (24 km) from south of Wilmington, this beach destination is crammed with marinas, fishing fleets, and party boats. What makes this place more interesting are the three main features, such as Intracoastal Waterway, Cape Fear River, and the Atlantic Ocean, that make water-based activities more accessible and thrilling. Of course, there is the other side of Carolina Beach. The local restaurants are places you would want to stay put, thanks to the chefs who know how to perk up a food lover’s taste buds.
