We are six active adults staying in Emerald Isle for a week, and decided to drive over to Morehead City for the afternoon and an early dinner. Big mistake! Almost no shopping, and very few restaurants. We kept looking and asking around the waterfront. Finally drove ten minutes to Beaufort--what a difference! Lots of historical houses, active waterfront, lots of restaurants, and terrific shopping.
We will never waste time in MC again--have we missed something?
