A Perfect Day Trip
July 6th, 2014
One of the MPT’s favorite quick trips from the Triangle is to Wrightsville Beach. Anytime of year.
Two hours from Raleigh, Wrightsville Beach is a huge beautiful expanse of soft sand, offering plenty of parking, restrooms, changing rooms and showers.
Johnny Mercer’s Pier, right at Wrightsville Beach, is worth checking out. Yes, there is a $3 charge to access the pier, but the view back to the beach is worth it and you’ll get some exercise to boot!
We always bring a picnic but there is plenty of food to be bought at the pier and at restaurants nearby.
You’ll have such a relaxing day that stopping for coffee at Port City Java on the way home is helpful before hitting the road. And while at coffee you can sneak next door into some fabulous boutiques….you did not hear it from me!
