A Christmas by the sea is something everyone should experience at least once. "Beach" tends to be the last thing on most peoples' minds when they think of December and early January, unless, of course, we're talking about a tropical escape. However, what many people don't know is that the Cape Fear/Wilmington region of North Carolina (including Wrightsville, Carolina and Kure Beach) enjoy average temperatures of 60℉ and just seven days total of rain in December. The weather is quite mild, and you're more likely to experience pleasant days walking or reading on the beach with some light layers. Beyond the surprisingly temperate weather, Cape Fear provides a laundry list of no brainer reasons to consider spending the holidays at the beach.

Visit the beach during "off season" and you'll see a whole new side. Traffic is non-existent, grocery lines are few and restaurants have plenty of room for you, with or without a reservation. You'll spend less time waiting and more time relaxing or enjoying quality time with your loved ones, which is exactly how an ideal holiday trip should be spent.

The shared common spaces allow for increased quality time, like working on a puzzle together, playing games or relaxing on the couch with a good movie.
