    Get in your Wright mind with a stay in Wrightsville Beach

    Just a 20-minute drive from Wilmington, Wrightsville Beach is easy to get to and yet feels a world away. Maybe that has something to do with the drawbridge you have to cross to get here from the mainland. Or maybe it's that you get to cross even more water, the Banks Channel, to reach the town's soft, sandy beach. The year-round population is just 2,500, and the low-key, friendly atmosphere means it doesn't feel too crowded even when it's crowded. Book your Wrightsville Beach vacation rental and get ready to relax.

    For fun in the sun, you're in the Wright place

    It's easy to be active in Wrightsville Beach. The beach itself is clean, sandy, and lapped by crystal clear water. It's a popular destination for surfers, kite boarders, and stand-up paddle boarders, and Johnnie Mercer's Pier is a beacon for amateur and experienced fishermen. The family-friendly community offers events like pirate treasure hunts, surf camps, and ecotours, and adults who visit without kids enjoy an easy-going nightlife. Plenty of restaurants overlook the marina and have docks for your fishing boat as well as freshly caught dinner and island-themed cocktails.

    Wrightsville Beach history is something to Wright home about

    Wrightsville Beach is more than just a beach town. It's home to a vibrant community of year-round residents who take pride in their history. Speaking of homes, take a peek at that history with a visit to the Bradley-Latimer Summer House, built in 1855. You can gaze at it enviously from the outside, and when you want to get a closer look at the way things used to be, head to the Wrightsville Beach Museum of History. Are the kiddos tired of the 19th century? Take them to Jungle Rapids Family Fun Park for water rides, mini-golf, and laser tag.

    Winter surf or summer sun, whichever is Wright up your alley

    Temperatures soar into the 90s during the humid summers in Wrightsville Beach, and that's when you'll see families and vacationers flocking to the area from Wilmington and everywhere else, too. Fall might be the seasonal best-kept secret. While the water is still warm through October, the price of Wrightsville Beach vacation rentals sink. By the time December rolls around, the town has a deserted feel, but enthusiastic surfers still hit the waves. Water temps stay chilly through spring, but visitors love walking, biking, and dining by the sea.

    Locals aim to do Wright by their feathered friends

    Your Wrightsville Beach vacation rental will be surrounded by more opportunities to commune with nature than you can shake a shrimp at. Masonboro Island, just south of town, is the largest undisturbed barrier island on North Carolina's southern coast. Loggerhead and green sea turtles hang out on the beaches, and the Audubon Society seeks to protect the habitats of birds like black skimmers, Wilson's plovers, and least terns. Travel west to Wilmington and treat yourself to a walk through the Airlie Gardens, a collection of camellias, magnolias, wisteria, and more.
