I need some "people in the know" information. Our son is stationed at Cherry Point MCAS and will be alone for Christmas so we were thinking about making the 16 hour drive to be with him over Christmas week. Here is my question -- I am looking for some place to stay about half way between Jacksonville and Havelock and came across Morehead City. What is the weather like in the winter? Will there be places to eat say on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day? Will there be things to do there? Or is this just a summer getaway location (ghost town during the winter months). Can anyone give me the lowdown?
