Britt's Donuts is a local institution that began in 1939 and still brings people out in droves to the boardwalk every summer (the shop isn't open the rest of the year). The locally-owned favorite serves only glazed, so don't bother asking for any other variety unless you want to be pegged as a newcomer.
Located on Pleasure Island just south of Wilmington, North Carolina, the cozy community of Carolina Beach isn't nearly as scandalous as the name of the island might suggest. The theory is that the name originated as the island was the summer spot for wealthy Wilmingtonians at the turn of the century and early 1900s. Today, it continues to be a popular vacation spot for locals and people from across the country. While the 2010 census put the population at 5,706 (an increase of more than 10% over the 2000 census), the area sees almost a million visitors every year, particularly in the summer. The first community after you cross Snow's Cut Bridge from Wilmington, Carolina Beach has always been the island's commercial hub with shopping centers, restaurants and a marina. See more
Apartment complexes with a gym offer a valuable amenity to Carolina Beach renters looking to get fit and slash their gym membership. However, not all gyms are the same.
Make a list of your must-haves in a gym setting. Ask about the variety and age of any cardio machines. Also ask about any weight training equipment and free weights.
Consider the spaciousness of the workout area. Some apartment gyms are small. Those can create tension with tenants looking to squeeze in a workout before or after work.
If you enjoy circuit training, make sure there’s enough space to spread out and get in the workout you want.
Cleanliness is also crucial to an apartment gym experience. During your apartment tour, carefully inspect the fitness area to check for cleanliness and any extra perks. Also consider the potential savings if you can cancel a gym membership!
Towels, an attendant, flat-screen TVs, and a locked door for exclusive tenants access can all add value to your apartment gym experience.
