North Carolina Beach Town warns against digging in the sand

And the town of Kill Devil Hills wants to make sure its summer guests know it. So they posted the video below on YouTube:

So what makes these holes dangerous? Well, for starters, vacationers and rescuers can fall into it while walking. They also pose a threat to animals such as endangered sea turtles. Beach driving is also allowed in Kill Devil Hills out of season and vehicles can get stuck in large holes. I know what you’re thinking, just be careful, it’s not that dangerous. This is not entirely true. A the teenager is actually dead to fall into a hole earlier this year in New Jersey.

But I know you’ll still dig. So what can you do to be safer? Keep your holes limited to the knees. And be courteous and fill it all up with packed sand when you pack up to leave. And be sure to supervise your children when they play in the sand.

Be safe there and have fun!

List of best coastal cities features cities in North and South Carolina

There are few things I love more than historic coastal towns. Whether it’s the New England charm of Newport Rhode Island, the southern paradise of Charleston or Savannah, or the California beach like Santa Cruz. Fishing boats, quaint shops, roller coasters by the beach, holm oaks, I love them all. So naturally, this list appealed to me. It’s USA Today’s “Best Small Coastal Towns”. We’re lucky coastal cities in North Carolina and South Carolina make the list.

This list is part of USA today recently released “10 best” campaign. Readers were able to vote for their favorites in a wide variety of categories. One of those categories was “Best Small Coastal Towns.” I was only briefly in South Carolina and never ventured into the Outer Banks, the home of North Carolina. Guess I’ll have to add these two coastal towns to my list of things to do in Carolina. But not only the cities of Carolina attracted me. Honestly, I would love to visit every city on this list. The picturesque views, the calmness of the water, but also the diversity of locations and experiences in each town are intriguing. You have Northeast, West Coast, Gulf, and East Coast locations.
