Beautiful weather attracts thousands to Cape Fear for holiday weekend

WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WWAY) — As you kick things off for the next three days sun and relaxation are probably on your list!

Beach towns up and down the Cape Fear are gearing up for a good weekend including Wrightsville Beach.

People from around the country will be enjoying the sun and sand. It’s traditionally the end of the summer tourist season.

From the beach to the restaurants and to shops the island should be busy. Visitors say they are excited to lay back, relax, and take it all in. Some even started their vacay early!

“I’ve spent my whole week on the beach,” Nolan Bryan, visiting the area, said. “I’m gonna spend the rest of the week probably at some sports bars watching college football. But if not, I’ll be out on the beach just taking in the ocean.”

Bryan says he’s visiting from Texas and has always loved vacationing at Wrightsville Beach.
