WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WWAY) -- Like we need an excuse to go to the beach, today Johnnie Mercer's Pier was the scene of a big announcement.
Representatives from the Chamber of Commerce, local leaders and the state Divison of Tourism all came out to a beautiful, sunny day on Wrightsville Beach. They weren't there for the unseasonable weather, but for the unveiling of the cover shot of the official 2012 North Carolina Travel Guide.
The cover photo of the pier at sunrise will set the tone for the guide. The guide features attractions and accommodations across the state.
