This was actually the second time I have traveled to Topsail Island so make note that it is a place worth going back to. Topsail Island is a pretty laid back place. It is not your all inclusive resort destination but offers a perfect family or individual getaway setting. What better way to relax then to spend a day at the beach - flying kites, walking along the ocean, watching for dolphins, observing sand crabs. I had the best time! I have yet to visit the Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehab Center but it is on my list for next time. Topsail Island is a quaint little village where all the beach houses are named - mine was called "Just Another Day in Paradise" That kind of says it all!! I could definitely get used to coastal living. Bring your camera, your beach wear, sunglasses & sunscreen! Leave your worries behind!!
