Carolina Beach's Boardwalk Brings Back The Good Ole Days Of Summer With Some New Attractions

The boardwalk at Carolina Beach, N.C. has added several new attractions for summer 2009, making it the place to be for days and nights of sun and affordable family fun. Seaside amusements, live bands, fireworks, quaint shops, restaurants, and the beach are all within walking distance of the boardwalk.

Carolina Beach's boardwalk will be the new headquarters for everything from arcade games and homemade treats to surrey bike rentals and shopping. Starting Memorial Day, seaside amusements, including a Ferris wheel and popular rides like the Scrambler, Tilt-a-whirl and Hang Ten will be just steps from the boardwalk. Every Thursday, enjoy live music from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at the Gazebo Stage located on Cape Fear Boulevard near the Boardwalk with a fireworks display immediately following on the beach. On Sundays, just a short distance away at Carolina Beach Lake Park, free, family-friendly first-run movies will be shown at dusk and include such favorites as Madagascar II, Monsters vs Aliens, and Night at the Museum II.

"The boardwalk at Carolina Beach is the place to be this summer," said Kim Hufham, President/CEO of the Wilmington/Cape Fear Coast Convention & Visitors Bureau. "During the past year, the community has revitalized the boardwalk and brought in seaside amusements that are perfect for kids of all ages. The whole scene is wonderfully nostalgic and takes visitors back to a simpler time. We encourage everyone to get back to the boardwalk for affordable family fun."
