We had planned on coming to the beach for Thanksgiving but those plans changed last minute so we are determined to stay on the beach for New Years. Any suggestions for two 33 year olds who like to take long walks with our dogs, relax in a quiet atmosphere and take photographs of lovely old architecture? I was thinking Carolina Beach because I had read they have a New Years festival of sorts and it's close to Wilmington where we could get our fix of old architecture and culture. Any other thoughts? Thanks!

BTW-this will be our last trip in NC before we move out of state so any other recommendations for must-sees are appreciated.

I have a friend who lives in Carolina Beach about your age. This time of year you can take your dogs to the beach. You can drive 4-wheel drive vehicles at the Northend park. I would think you can find a good rate on hotel rooms as well. Have you been to the aquarium at fort fisher or the USS North Carolina in Wilmington?

You can also take your dog on the beach at Wrightsville Beach this time of year, plus good rates on oceanfront rooms. But, it might be hard to find a place to stay that is pet friendly. There are lots of restaurants to choose from in the Wrightsville Beach/Landfall/Mayfaire area, and you're closer to historic Wilmington (than Carolina Beach). I love my dog, but I'd probably leave her at home for this one, unless you're staying more than a day or two.
