Hi everyone,

My wife and I are planned on driving to the beach about once a month or ever six weeks once the weather warms up. We moved here from up north and want to take advantage of being closer to the ocean.

We plan on taking 2-3 night trips at a time. Does anyone have any recommendations for some affordable places to stay? We aren't really looking for a motel, but don't need much space. I saw some great posts about Atlantis Lodge and I think we are definitely going to try that. We don't really have a beach preference yet. We'd like to check out several.

Since it sounds like you are wanting to go more than once, I would HIGHLY recommend visiting a different beach each time.

Check out Wilmington (Wrightsville Beach), Myrtle Beach, Atlantic Beach and especially the Outer Banks. There are so many different sections to each place, half the fun is exploring to see where to stay at next!

I'm not a huge fan of Topsoil but I do like Emerald Isle and Beaufort as well.

Grab some travel books at Barnes & Noble for the NC & SC coast and have fun! (dont forget Virgina Beach too!)

Good luck!
