BOLIVIA, NC, April 26 /CNW/ - Featuring five barrier islands and miles
of pristine beaches, North Carolina's Brunswick Islands are known for
family "fun in the sun," but when visitors look beyond the beach a
world of natural adventure unfolds. In a myriad of tidal creeks and
rivers, historic towns, uninhabited barrier islands and nature
preserves, endless opportunities to get up close and personal with
nature lure beach-goers inland and off-shore. For more information,
"Experience Nature from the Front Row"
Visitors can enjoy a sunset or full moon paddle, explore tidal pools on
barrier islands, glide down black water rivers past 400- to
1,000-year-old Cypress trees dripping with Spanish Moss and observe
birds and wildlife on guided trips. http://www.theadventurecompany.net/ktours.htm
