23 THE ORIGINAL RELOCATION GUIDE — CAPE FEAR NC | VOLUME 14—ISSUE 1 on paper in a notebook left behind to inspire or encouraage. End the day at Sunset Inn that is mere steps from the Atlantic Ocean and Intercoastal Waterway. The inn is recognized as one of the best "B and B's in the Carolinas" by AAA magazine. Every view is scenic but the best is from your own private screened-in porch. Ocean Isle is a family beach with the best of all worlds: fewer crowds, gentler waves and warmer water than other beaches and a 45-minute drive from Wilmington. The Museum of Coastal Carolina is a haven for small children with story time, planetarium shows and "Touch Tank Feeding." Kids and adults alike have fun at Shallotte River Swamp Park, home to challenging ropes courses, zipline tours and swamp boat eco-tours. In the evening, adults can sip wine at the Silver Coast Winery for a relaxing way to end the day. Ocean Isle made the list of TripAdvisor's "20 Affordable Summer Beach Destinations across the U.S." No matter which island or beach you choose, there is something to see, do or explore on Brunswick Island beaches. Outfitters, tour guides, charter captains, zip line and other adventure guides stand ready to show adventure seekers a day of fun and relaxation on land or water.
