We all have an idea of what our perfect dream house.
For me, I would love to have a house on the beach.
My idea setting would be Hawaii, although I doubt I’ll ever get the chance to go there.
But my second choice for have a beach house would be in Emerald Isle, NC.
Emerald Isle is a special place for me. It’s a small, beach town in North Carolina. Every summer, my family would go on vacation there.
What I love most about Emerald Isle is that it’s more of a family friendly place. There’s lots of activities to do. They have mini golf courses, go-kart race tracks, aquariums, and museums. My favorite places to visit during our trips were Pine Knolls Aquarium, Fort Macon, and the Maritime Museum. I’m a bit of a history buff, so it was great visiting the fort and museum to learn about Emerald Isle’s early days.
When the family wasn’t busy sightseeing, we’d lounge by the hotel pool or go for a dip in the ocean. I’d spend most of my time strolling the beach, collecting seashells for my collection. During the evenings, the family would go for a walk on the Bogue Inlet Pier, which was just below our hotel. Standing on the pier, looking out on the ocean was a beautiful sight.
I have so many fond memories of our vacations in Emerald Isle, that’s why it’d be nice to have a house down there. A place where I can escape to relax and have fun.
