As the Front Desk Supervisor at the Courtyard Carolina Beach, I schedule monthly meetings. For our June meeting I asked the Front Desk Supervisor at our sister hotel, The Fairfield Inn in Wilmington to join us. Both hotels have associates that do not live on Carolina Beach, but try to promote local businesses. How do you promote places that you have not visited or have little knowledge of? The Tasting History Tour! For 2 1/2+ hours we were treated to some of the best food and wine from 5 local Carolina Beach establishments, Along this walking tour, we had a very knowledgeable history tour guide that told interesting and entertaining stories about the area and it's history. The twelve of us, some whom have lived here all their lives and others that are new to the area, learned a lot and left the tour full and happy! I recommend this tour for everyone, locals and tourists.
