I had a bad experience with one of their friendly citizens who placed his trash can in a legal parking space and told me I could not park there because it was trash day. I ignored the arrogant man while he cursed me and removed the trash can and fed my quarters! So much for friendly day at the beach. This incident made a lasting impression with me of how some WB residents view day trippers. I now drive from my northern New Hanover County residence to go Topsail for a stress free day. It is a much more enjoyable despite the few extra miles. I lose an hour of my time on the parking meter at WB by unpacking and packing the car with two young children.Also you are not guaranteed a parking space unless you are an early arrival on the weekends. Not worth the aggravation! WB has an image problem that is to some degree well deserved. My advice would be to seek fun in the sun alternatives elsewhere if possible . They just want your taxpayer money for beach renourishment projects and your quarters to offset the burden on homeowners of this exclusive public beach.
