My Town is the Centerfold!

My Town is the Centerfold!

As I was flipping through the pages of the latest edition of "Coastal Living" magazine, I was thrilled to see the town of Pine Knoll Shores featured in "21 Best Beach Vacations".

While it is a wonderful place to visit, it's an even better place to live.  "Coastal Living" refers to our area as North Carolina's best-kept beach secret and refers to Pine Knoll Shores as a strip of fine white sand that's home to the North Carolina Aquarium.  They forgot to mention Bogue Sound, the Country Club of the Crystal Coast, Trinity Center, the most awesome views of the Atlantic, and the sweet, southern hospitality of the folks who live in Pine Knoll Shores.  

Oh well, it's still too cool and I am proud to call Pine Knoll Shores, North Carolina home!  What a fabulous place to live, work & play!

Pine Knolls sounds like it will not be the best kept secrete anymore. And by the way Happy Birthday!

Well done, and it has to have some connection to all those wonderful Localism Posts you did that brought people there.

Woohoo, congrats! Always nice to know that someone from "outside" sees the same beauty in your hometown that you do. I may have to plan a drive down the coast sometime soon to check out what Pine Knoll Shores is all about! :)

Amy, if I were you I would go out and buy all the magazines you are able to collect.  Send them out to people who are on the fence.

Amy,  See, I told you you'd be glad someday.  Remember 20 years ago when I dragged you, your sister, our little dog and your fish to the coast to live.  Wow!  

I knew it was the right choice for our little family and look at us now!  Happy Birthday, dear daughter.
