UNC-W Visit - best way for a quick visit to the beach

I will be traveling to Wilmington for a day trip visit of UNC-W. We'd like to go to the shore just to spend an hour or so along the shore, preferably somewhere less crowded. Any tips on the best way to do this? Thanks!

Drive to the north end (turn left) past the Holiday Inn Resort. That is the less crowded end. There are several small parking lots (you do have to pay). If it is a weekend....get there early to get a parking space.

We don't say shore. We say beach. You must be from the northeast.

Just drive to Wrightsville Beach. That would be quickest, but Carolina Beach and Kure Beach and Fort Fisher are close by too. Easy to do any or all of them.
