How to Plan Weekend Getaways from Charlotte

Is there anything better than spending a day at the beach? The gentle waves of the ocean, the warm sun, and soft sand make for the perfect environment in which to destress. Luckily for guests of Spinnaker’s Reach, our homes are just minutes away from the quiet stretch of shoreline on Coast Guard Road. Do some sunbathing, venture out into the water for a swim, or just sit and observe the wildlife and people roaming to and fro. Be sure to pack some essentials, like water and other drinks, food, sunscreen, beach towels, bathing suits, and beach hats. Scope out the perfect spot, lay back, and listen to the sound of the waves rushing in and crashing on the shore. Welcome to your happy place!
