"Warmed by the Gulf Stream, the North Carolina Coast is a sunny place filled with pristine beaches, giant sand dunes (including Jockey's Ridge, the highest along the East Coast) and wetlands filled with wildlife and a variety of plants. The defining characteristic of the area is the Outer Banks, a chain of fragile barrier islands - 130 miles of unspoiled coastline surrounded by 900 square miles of water.

The area is also full of history, dating back to the 16th century, when the first English settlement was built - and then vanished. There are also sites from pre-Revolutionary Days through the Civil War. Not to mention the historic lighthouses (including the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, which at 208 feet is the tallest brick lighthouse in the nation). The city of Wilmington is a major US seaport. And, in 1903 the Wright Brothers ushered in the era of flight at Kitty Hawk. The average annual temperature here is 63 degrees. The growing season lasts 295 days." (

"Geography's gift to North Carolina is the largest area of protected inland waters of any state on the East Coast. The Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) covers 265 miles as it winds its way through North Carolina from Currituck to Calabash. Offshore, the Gulf Stream swings to within 30 miles of the central North Carolina coast providing excellent fishing opportunities year round. It's no secret that the area offers some of the finest diving available along the East Coast. Bathed by the warm waters of the Gulf Stream, scuba divers find a world of incredible beauty beneath the waves. Of course, recreational opportunities are abundant on land, too. Mild winter temperatures allow for a longer outdoor season, and recreation facilities are plentiful. The area has been praised for its availability of public beach access and public boat ramp facilities. Public tennis courts, playgrounds, bike and nature trails also await you. The area is rapidly becoming one of the nation's premiere golfing destinations. There are a number of public and private courses in the area, all with beautiful natural settings and reasonable rates. The opportunities don't stop there. Whether your pleasure is kayaking or kiting, jet-skiing or just shelling, you will find a myriad of ways to spend your time on the central North Carolina coast"

Real Estate Whether you’re looking for your first home or searching for that perfect rental property, the NC Coast is the perfect location. Diversity is the key to real estate in on the North Carolina coast. From beach houses to historic homes and everything in between, it’s all available here.

NCCOAST Communications publishes four individual and area-specific HOMES Magazines every month. These real estate magazines have grown to be the authority for available properties offered by local realtors. Individual HOMES magazines published include Crystal Coast HOMES, Craven-Pamlico HOMES, Onslow County HOMES and Topsail HOMES

From the barrier islands along the great Outer Banks to the majesty of the Blue Ridge and Smokey mountains and from college towns such as Chapel Hill and Charlotte to the high-tech corridor of the Raleigh-Durham area, North Carolina offers a wealth of natural beauty and resources and a variety of exceptional lifestyles. Historically the “Tar Heel” state has led the way as a pioneer of progress and development. In North Carolina Sir Walter Raleigh established the first English settlement, Fort Raleigh and the Wright Brothers flew the first controlled airplane in the town of Kitty Hawk. The state historically and still today provides a home for industry leaders and innovation.

North Carolina stretches east from Manteo to the western border Murphy and is 560 miles long, making it the longest state east of the Mississippi. Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean on the East, Tennessee on the West, Virginia to the North and South Carolina and Georgia to the South, North Carolina is divided into three distinct geographic areas: the Mountains, the Heartland, often called the Piedmont, and the Coast. Each has its own marvelous features for residents.


North Carolina TOPO MAP With the TOPO! map of North Carolina, National Geographic has taken the interactive topographic map experience to a new level. By combining its own standard-setting maps with the high-quality scanned versions of the actual paper USGS topographical maps, the National Geographic TOPO! State Series offers five levels of map detail that is unprecedented in its accuracy. Professional and weekend hikers alike will be amazed at how indispensable TOPO! will quickly become in the back country.

Simply load TOPO! onto your PC, and you'll immediately begin to see the benefits of this award-winning software.

You can also create and view elevation profiles that will help you visualize your planned trek. By connecting to any standard color or black-and-white desktop printer, TOPO! allows you to select the exact area that you want to print, even if it is larger than the screen or covers multiple quad maps. TOPO! makes it a breeze to add map border information to printouts, including UTM or latitude/longitude grids, scale bars, north arrows, and magnetic declination. With Adventure Paper (sold separately) you can print out waterproof trail maps -- along with all your marks and annotations -- that will survive any rainstorm the wilderness can throw at you.

TOPO! is also GPS ready, with no extensions or upgrades required. Transferring waypoints and routes between your GPS and TOPO! couldn't be easier. And with Pocket TOPO! (sold separately), you can take full advantage of your PDA the next time the wilderness calls. Simply download your maps and notes to your device, and off you go.
