A must return throughout the year; best Christmas display of lights I've ever seen; flowers are gorgeous and different types in season throughout the year so can enjoy the park all year; always send out of town folks her for a visit and no one is EVER disappointed
We actually stayed at Sunset Beach State Park. From there you can walk through a beautiful forest and immediately begin amazing overviews of the coast. About a mile in you hit Shore Acres. Each view is better than the last. Hike all the way to the visitor center for spectacular waves and a great picnic spot.
I have only been to Shore Acres to see the Christmas lights so was delighted to see it during Spring to see all the lovely flowers. I used to hear the ocean when there in the dark so it was great to see the coastline at last.
