Wrightsville Beach has been nominated to represent Southern Living magazine’s “South’s Best 2019” contest as one of the region’s best beaches.
Along with Wrightsville Beach, other destinations in North Carolina for the “South’s Best Beach” include Corolla, Kill Devil Hills, Nags Head, Ocean Isle Beach, Ocracoke Village, Southport, and the Village of Bald Head Island. Other sites in neighboring states South Carolina and Virginia were listed as well.
In other categories listed in this year’s contest, Wilmington is nominated in the category of the “South’s Best City,” and PinPoint Restaurant, located in downtown Wilmington is listed among the “South’s Best Restaurants.”
The Wilmington and Beaches Convention & Visitors Bureau is hopeful that local citizens will vote for New Hanover County’s three nominees to help ensure that our destination is well-represented among the winners in the Southern Living “South’s Best 2019” contest.
“Securing a top spot in high-profile voting contests such as Southern Living’s ‘South’s Best’ provides great exposure for a travel destination. It provides that valuable third-party endorsement to potential visitors in our top visitor feeder markets,” said Kim Hufham, president/CEO of the New Hanover County Tourism Development Authority.
The digitally crowd-sourced survey about the South’s best places allows Southern Living readers to vote for their favorite places in the South. According to SouthernLiving.com, last year’s survey received more than 32,000 responses. Local citizens can show their community pride by casting their votes through October 9, 2018.
