Wrightsville Beach Anniversary Vacation
Oh my, I truly wish that I was back at the beach currently sipping fruity pool drinks while soaking up the sun! Since I shared a little bit of our vacation on Instagram live and received so many questions. I wanted to answer all of them in a single post to make it super easy as you may your way down to the OBX!
First, we stayed at the Blockade Runner Hotel. It is on the strip of Wrightsville and trust when I say if you get the Harbor view, you won’t be disappointed! Plus, it saves you a few extra bucks from not getting the Oceanside view. Along with the view, you receive a pass to their outdoor pool, work out room, sauna, and HUGE hot tub. Oh, plus private beach access!
Second, I would recommend grabbing your umbrella, beach towels and chairs from Amazon. Seriously, it is the best purchase yet! We kept everything in the car until we wanted to go to the beach. When we decided to head that way, grabbing everything was a piece of cake. It also saves you a LOT of money from having to rent from the hotel.
Thirdly, the food at the beach is one of our favorite things to SPLURGE on. Seriously, these places are the best!
