Plenty to see and do: Fort Macon State Park. Located one mile east of condo - construction began on this fort in 1826 in response to fears among the colonists of an invasion by a hostile nation. The fort would later be traded back and forth between Union and Confederate forces during the Civil War before it became a federal prison in 1867, closed entirely in 1903 and then was purchased by North Carolina for $1 in 1924 to become the second state park. Featuring a beautiful beach and interactive programs about the fort, Ft. Macon State Park is a great place to soak up some history or just soak up the sun.

Sands Villa is in Atlantic Beach, one mile East of the Morehead City/ Atlantic Beach Causeway bridge. Atlantic Beach is located on the east end of a 20 mile barrier island. This area is the southern most region of the Outer Banks and is appropriately called the Crystal Coast. Locals think of the area spanning from Emerald Isle through Pine Knoll Shores and Atlantic Beach, over to Morehead City and into Beaufort as one community, and travel between the areas is easy and enjoyable. Beaufort is a historic town with lovely shops and many restaurants lining the waterfront walkway. Beaufort is home to the annual N.C. Seafood Festival held in October.
