Whisking ourselves away for an adventure any time the mood strikes is ideal for us. With no kids at home, no pets and no killable plants, this phase of our life is all about new experiences and adventures.
This is why we planned a last-minute getaway to Wilmington, NC, and its beaches, an area we’ve visited often. There’s so much to see and do; it requires multiple trips. Our choice of the comfy Front Street Inn allows easy walking access to downtown and a savory homemade quiche from innkeeper Polly each morning.
Fall is an especially great time to visit. It’s less crowded as schools reopen—giving the beaches plenty of elbow room—and accommodations switch to “off-season” rates, yet mild Southern weather beckons.
