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
Parking can be at a premium in some cities where spaces are challenging to find. Some Carolina Beach apartments offer parking options, either outside in a common area or within a private garage.
Ask about the stipulations around the parking. Those may include how many guests are allowed and where tenants park.
Some apartments may only allow parking in front of your own unit. Guest parking may be in a common area for up to one person.
If parking is scarce, look around the area before you sign a lease. Ample street parking in a neighborhood championed for its safety is probably fine. However, it’s probably not worth signing a lease if it means battling for daily parking for you and your guests.
Research whether you need a city permit to park in the neighborhood. Look into the associated costs and what to do about visitors who need parking.
Some tenants prefer garage parking near their units. However, an open-air lot may prove cheaper.
Keep in mind that the cost of wear and tear from parking outside can add up. It may be less expensive, in the long run, to look for an apartment with garage parking.
