"Kure Beach is great because it has Fort Fisher and the aquarium, and you can take a ferry from there that goes over to Southport. A lot of people go fishing on the Kure Beach Pier. A majority of tourists stay in Kure Beach because it’s walking distance to some restaurants.”
"I love that Kure Beach has a small town feel to it. The fact that there is a wonderful sense of community in this area. Plus, it's got tons of history—everything from Colonial America all the way up to World War II. There's a lot of history, and a lot of great things happening here."
