One of the best deals for sightseeing in NC is the ferry system along its coast. We take this ferry from Fort Fisher to Southport everytime we go to Wilmington just for the ride and the view. For a mere $5 we get to drive onto the ferry and sail across to the other side. It’s a short 30 minute ride, and the views are wonderful.
