You do not have to go all the way to North Carolina to experience an incredible Beach. Sandbridge is a gem. Wide, Sandy beaches, pristine and natural, even semi-isolated in the off season, yet within minutes of shopping, great restaurants and movies.

I saw several dogs on the beach but don't remember seeing any signs about it (like whether it was lawful or not).
