Carolina Beach and town, North Carolina NC

Description

Carolina Beach is a fun town with cute pastel-colored beach houses. There are ice cream shops galore and even an amusement park on the boardwalk! Come walk around and get that summertime feeling! Pure joy!
The water at the beach has a beautiful blue-green hue, but is not crystal clear. Build some castles in the abundant sand. Cabbage palms make for a tropical feel as you walk the streets and park at the beach access areas. 
There is a carousel, cotton candy stand, arcade games, ferris wheel, ring of fire, fun slides (these are sketchy as they can burn your skin if you don't sit properly on the sack), and spinning rides at the amusement park. I  haven't been to the amusement park yet so I can't say how it is. 
At the boardwalk, there is a swinging bench where you can sit with your loved one and watch the blue sea. Some nights you can see fireworks! This usually takes place Thursdays from the end of May to the end of August- music at 6:30pm and fireworks at 9pm. The first and last are on a Friday though (5/25/18 and 8/31/18).
Make sure you have a waffle cone at Squiggley's ice cream, an adorable ice cream shop with pink railing and fun decorations. The ice cream is delicious because it's creamy and not too sweet- it doesn't make you feel sick at all. And the cones are baked fresh.
Kure Beach is the next beach south of Carolina Beach and has a more upmarket feel.
Make sure you visit North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher, a top-notch aquarium.
