My family has been to Emerald Isle for years and recently my aunt purchased a condo in Carolina Beach so we've been going there the past couple of years. N. Topsail, Surf City and Topsail is located below EI and above Wrightsville (which we also like)....What is there to do in this area? Places to eat? Live music? How is the beach compared with the areas above? EI has the best beach IMO but we love the vibe of Carolina Beach plus it is close to Wilmington, Southport, Wrightsville Beach. How would you describe this area in comparison to CB and EI?
