We bought some property from Coastal Communities a couple of years ago, it was a pretty positive experience. Hope you have one too
When you are down there eat at Provisions at Holden Beach. You won't be sorry. We went there for lunch today

We'll check that out for sure-menu suggestions?

How was the 1st day? Are they as ok to work for as they are to do business with? Have your knees stopped quivering?

Thanks for the dining recommendation

Provisions is a nice casual place and the fish is so fresh. I had the grouper sandwich and my boss's has a shrimp burger and it looked great too. The prices are very reasonable. My sandwich was 7.95 and the shrimp one was 8.95.

My first day was wonderful! We toured all the properties and had a wonderful lunch at Provisions and while I was eating we saw a dolphin out there playing. The weather was great and the Coastal people are great people, very down to earth. My head boss is from NY and almost everyone else NJ.

Centrally located along Highway 17 in Brunswick County NC, Shallotte offers small town charm along with restaurants, shopping centers, medical parks, and community recreation such as golf, movie theaters, bowing, dancing, and nightlife.

North Myrtle Beach is 20 miles and Myrtle Beach 32 miles via Highway 17 South. Historic Waterfront Wilmington is 30 miles to the North via Highway 17 North. Three North Carolina beaches are minutes away: Ocean Isle Beach, is a 10 minute drive, Holden Beach a 15 minute drive, and Sunset Beach, a 20 minutes drive. International Airports are located in Wilmington and Myrtle Beach. Small aircraft have use of a full service community airport located in Ocean Isle Beach.

i know that this is an older post but I had to reply anyways....I am originally from the "Greater Shallotte area" if there is such a thing, from the small town of Thomasboro NC located about 7 miles south of Shallotte (closer to the SC border and just West of Calabash) I grew up there all my life experiencing the small town atmosphere of everyone knowing practically everyone. It is a quaint area that has always been the shopping hub for the surrounding beaches (Holden Beach, Ocean Isle and Sunset Beach) Tourism (golfing and beaching) have increased within the last 10 to 15 yrs and so has the retiree matriculation. There are still a lot of 'home-grown' people that live and work in the area and have to suffer with transients coming and going but wouldn't leave what they know including my Mother and other relatives. With Myrtle Beach and Wilmington only being 20 miles in either direction, Shallotte (although it is still growing) has turned into a quieter less bustling attraction for those that desire serenity. I have not lived at home for while (I live in Ohio now..yeah I know! LOL From Sunshine to Snow) but during my return trips it is amazing to see the transformations that have taken place....I hope that this generalization has given you some thought were you wish to relocate or just to visit. Its worth the trip of coming down to see what the area offers. Best wishes

My sister and her husband live in Ocean Isle Beach just outside Shallotte. It's a really nice place and we love to go and visit. I lived in Surf City, NC, just north of Wilmington, and it was growing as Shallotte is. A lot of tourists in the summer, but I always loved it in the winter. It's a beautiful part of NC.
