First timers

My husband & I are coming to Carolina Beach for a week in July (our first trip to CB). We are "beach people"..not interested in sightseeing...just want to lay on the beach & chill out.

What restaurants to you recommend, we are from the midwest, so we are looking for some great seafood.

Also, are there many grocery stores close by...want to buy snack food, beer & wine. If we decide to venture to other beaches, which would you suggest that are close by (not over 1/2 drive time).

Any and all suggestions would be very appreciated!!

Been to CB and KB numerous times....loved every minute of it!

You can NOT compare it to Kiawah Island at all!

Enjoy CB....you will have a great time!

We love CB too. Its been very family friendly both times we've been there. I'd like to hear the specifics of why the other poster said to avoid it at all costs. We've never had any negative things to say about the whole area. And Pop's has great ice cream and roast beef sandwiches. We had ice cream 4 times during our 5 day stay.
