The Intracoastal Waterway is a gorgeous 3,000 mile stretch of land that runs all the way from Boston, Massachusetts down to the southernmost tip of Florida, and then follows around the Gulf Coast, ending in Texas. Along the Intracoastal Waterway sits North Carolina, and several beautiful beaches. As if those beaches aren’t enough to call to you, here are a few other benefits of living on the Intracoastal Waterway.
Depending upon the house you choose, you are either going to get a view of the mainland, while others will give you a view of the ocean. Either way, the views are spectacular. There’s a good chance you have a water view no matter which home you choose. Your windows will be filled with picturesque sunrises and sunsets. And you might want to invest in a bird identification book, because all manner of gorgeous native birds will be passing by.
Many of the homes on the Intracoastal Waterway have their own private boat docks. That’s right; you can go right from your backyard down to the dock and hop on your boat. You can boat leisurely around the waterway and take in the unique architectural views (many homes on the waterway have their most interesting features facing the water), or hit one of the many inlets that provide access to the ocean.
Sure, you can boat around all day, but boating is not the only water activity you can partake on the Intracoastal Waterway. Whether boating isn’t your thing, or you want to give your boat a rest, you can hop on a jet ski, go paddle boarding, head out in a canoe or kayak or grab your rod and reel to go fishing.
You can’t get much fresher than bringing home your own fish. But fishing isn’t the only thing you can do on the Waterway. You can take out a bucket and go crabbing, or you can go digging for clams. The tides go in and out with the ocean, leaving behind some of the best spots to look for crabs or clams. Or you can wade out into the water and cast your line.
Speaking of dining, if bringing home your own fresh seafood doesn’t sound all that appealing, there are all kinds of restaurants located right on the water. You can enjoy your favorite food with beautiful views. What’s more is that many waterfront restaurants have their own boat docks. So, rather than hopping in the car and dealing with traffic and parking, you can take your boat right to the restaurant, dock up and have a delicious meal.
Porter’s Neck Plantation and Country Club is a private, gated community that sits right along the Intracoastal Waterway. With docks, fishing, kayaking and a whole slew of other amenities, you are sure to enjoy everything that the Intracoastal Waterway has to offer. Still not convinced?
