Emerald Isle or Surf City/Topsail, NC vacations?s

Trying to plan a last min. vacation down south before the kiddos head back to school. Anyone ever rent @ Emerald Isle or Surf City/Topsail Is., NC? We did VA Beach last year and I want to do something a little more laid back this year. Have done the house on the beach @ the Outer Banks but that's for yankees...you know... :-)

Have heard good things about EI and Surf City and they are only a little farther down the road.

Suburban redneck.

Goodnight Mrs. Calabash, where ever you are.

Sound like Jimmy Durante, apparently there was a connection to that phrase according to the people of Calabash

Just searched the line and this is what it said;

You’ll remember that this was Jimmy Durante’s signature sign-off on his radio and TV shows of a mysterious woman’s name, during the 1940’s. Longtime residents of Calabash, NC believe it was Lucy Coleman, the owner of a restaurant in town where Jimmy stopped one night for dinner, had a friendly chat with her, and said “goodnight Mrs. Calabash” as he left. She apparently left an impression on him and the rest is history

Emerald is better.

The other beaches sport singlewides on stilts as beach homes, I've seen it with my own eyes. they're also closer to Camp Lejeune, no disrespect to the USMC, but a quiet vacation around drunk marines seems like a tuff sell ... just sayin ...

Well, sometimes you eat the bear, and sometimes, well, he eats you, so the Dude must abide!

For the OT guys, thanks for the input.

Easier finding something last min. in Topsail but I'll focus on Emerald and go from there.

Did find a nice first floor beachfront condo that sleeps 6 in Topsail for $1195/wk (which includes tax, cleaning, linens, etc.). Only available the wk after we are looking for but I guess we can be flexible.

Just wanted to try something different from OBX.
