Carolina Plantations Real Estate Blog

Announcing “The Best” of Coastal North Carolina

If there's anything Carolina Plantations excels at, it's Holden Beach real estate and food.

While we have excellent knowledge on both subjects, it just makes perfect sense that we share that with you.

We realize that vacationers to the area arrive with their own ideas of places they want to go and what they want to eat. Not knowing the area all that well it makes it a little difficult to find the perfect spots.

But not to worry! We can help with that!

After 18 years of living in Coastal North Carolina, we've put together a conglomeration of favorite restaurants and other various venues. While some of you will disagree with these selections, you are free to make your own recommendations in the comments section below.
