I grew up going to Emerald Isle with my family. My dad loved to fish! We have lots of friends that own places there so we really enjoy going and just hanging out with friends. Of course our children and grandchildren enjoy going also.
We are from Wilson, NC, so it is only about a two hour drive for us. As soon as you drive across the bridge it is like another world!!!
