What travelers to Wrightsville Beach are saying

Spent this Labor Day weekend enjoying the best beach in NC...spent 3 full days on the beach and in the ocean and it was relaxing and wonderful. Great seafood locations on the island and in the immediate area. Had nice dinners at The Oceanic and The Bridgetender(but I could barely have a conversation with my wife over dinner at the Bridgetender because of the noise volume~sad....but dinner was very good). Went downtown Wilmington for some free live music on the Cape Fear river. Ate at our favorite restaurant on the Riverwalk again....Elijah's. Always a good meal with a great view with reasonable prices. The Carolina bucket was full of crab legs, oysters, clams, sausage, corn, etc and was fantastic(as always). We usually stay on the riverwalk at the Best Western but wanted to give Wrightsville Beach a try to be more right on the beach. Plenty to do in Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach area. Much more touristy than it used to be and it's getting to be quite a populated retirement/college/beach town with all the problems that come with that.....heavy traffic and infrastructure that's struggling to keep up with growth. I still love the area and enjoy the visits we make there time and time again......
