Coastal North Carolina towns with beaches advertise that many beaches can be reserved for free, or with very reasonable fees for weddings. The fees can vary from town to town.
You may have been in sticker shock over venue prices for events, when you need space for weddings, anniversary parties, family reunions, etc. Free or reasonable fees at friendly North Carolina beaches is wonderful!
We used to live in the area and it is charming! We go back any chance we get.
