                       photo Michele Connors  We love the 4th of July.. and spend our family time on the beach.As homeowners of a cottage on Emerald Isle NC , we tend to see many of our neighbors and friends this time of year down on the beach ..soaking up the sun as the salty breeze and sounds of crashing waves lull us to relaxation.Our kids have grown up around the ocean in the summertime.. From army men , barbies, buckets and shovel, to tag football and surfboards. Now they are grown adults we still gather to enjoy a few cold beverages and a few rounds of cornhole or bocce on the beach. They bring friends and we invite our friends...folks just stop by when they are able to visit. We enjoy the laid back and casual atmosphere Emerald Isle offers as well as the sense of community on the...

Summer 2015: 2015 "Can't Miss U.S. Beaches " listed by CNN Travel ... Emerald Isle, NC made the list. If you have ready my blog over the last 9 years you might know that Emerald Isle is where we have a beach cottage and where I work from when selling at the Crystal Coast. Located at the western end of Bogue Banks, Emerald Isle is a family friendly atmosphere with great housing options from 200,000 range to multi-millions depending on your budget.  There are just a few condo complexes, most of the island is single family or duplex style housing.  Congratulations to Emerald Isle for making the list. Due to the lack of commercial housing like hotels, most tourists rent a cottage for their stay and end up buying before their stay is over ! If you are thinking about visiting the Crystal Coas...
