Carolina Beach offers a family-friendly beach atmosphere, complete with an old-fashioned boardwalk. Kids of all ages can enjoy spinning at the local amusement park, playing on the sandy shores, or camping at Carolina Beach State Park. If you're looking for good, clean, summer fun, this town is the place to be. Free live music and fireworks light up Thursday nights through September, making entertaining the entire brood on a budget an easy task.
The Fudgeboat: The Carolina Beach boardwalk holds many treasures, but The Fudgeboat is one that definitely shouldn't be missed. A 38-foot wooden boat hull displays delicacies made from fresh pecans, walnuts, caramel, and more. In fact, you might even be tempted to say "that's a yacht of fudge!" Taste your way through peanut butter chocolate fudge, vanilla fudge, chocolate amaretto fudge, and more--all of which is made in the store right in front of you! Be sure to bring along a coupon for a free half-pound of fudge.
