When you fly to Albert J. Ellis Airport (OAJ) near Jacksonville, North Carolina, you are probably going for one of two things: a military visit or the pristine beaches. Jacksonville, located in Onslow County, is the home of a prominent Marine Corps base at Camp Lejeune, and is situated at the head of the New River.
Outdoor activities are really the primary draw of Jacksonville. Fishing on the New River and in the coastal Atlantic waters is abundant. Hiking and sightseeing can be accomplished in the nearby Hoffman Forest.
The golden Topsail Beach is located 22 miles south of downtown Jacksonville. There is even a bike trail from the city to the beach if you're feeling extra-adventurous.
The area is also exceedingly proud of its military history, offering unique memorials and museums like the Missiles & More Museum at Topsail Beach. The Onslow County Museum is located in nearby Richlands and sponsors an African-American Heritage Trail detailing the history and sites associated with African-Americans in the region.
Renting a car is practically a must as the airport is located near Richlands about 14 miles north of Jacksonville and nearly 40 miles away from the beach.
