Weekend Showcase: The Crystal Coast

This Saturday's Weekend Showcase, airing at 9:55 am, will take a look at North Carolina's Gem - The Crystal Coast.

The Crystal Coast, along the coastline of North Carolina, is 85 miles long and is home to 11 distinct and beautiful regions. The water in the region is typically warmer than water at other beach destinations due to its proximity to the Gulf stream, making it a great choice for families.

Visitors are able to find activities close to home, during all four seasons of the year. Here are a few examples:

  • surfing

  • seafood, music, and pirate festivals

  • paddleboarding

  • shelling

  • visiting an aquarium, maritime museum, or historical Civil War-era fort


  • seeing wild horses

  • fishing sports tournaments

  • the barrier islands

  • visiting a lighthouse and enjoying the lookout

  • fishing of all types
