Bald Head Island, NC

Come September, the already quiet island off the shore of Wilmington, NC, becomes nearly deserted except for the 160 people who call the island home year round. With no cars on the island, you’ll find a peaceful silence that’s hard to find anywhere else. While the weather gets a little chilly, the water is still warm. But for those who would rather stay dry, the world-class golf course, the conservatory’s bird walks and Old Baldy lighthouse round out a relaxing getaway.
