Southeastern North Carolina Beach Access Rules for Dogs

By Judy Royal

If you’re in the market for Wilmington NC real estate or you just want to take a vacation in the area, there’s a good chance you might be factoring a four-legged family member into your plans, as pet ownership is steadily on the rise; 65 percent of U.S. households, or about 79.7 million, own a pet, according to the 2015-2016 National Pet Owners Survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association, an increase from 56 percent of U.S. households in 1988, the first year the survey was conducted.

While you’ll find a variety of pet types in American homes, the most common are dogs and cats. Cats can settle into (and, let’s face it, take over) practically any dwelling space and be perfectly content with never venturing beyond the walls of your residence. Dogs, however, are the pets you’ll be most likely to take on excursions with you. Southeastern North Carolina, with its numerous public beaches, is a prime location for an interactive adventure with your canine companion.

Before you pack up the pooch and embark on such an excursion, though, there are some things you need to know. It’s not a Fido free-for-all out there. Each beach has various rules (and hefty fines for those who don’t comply) so people and animals can live in harmony while enjoying fun in the sun. But no matter where you are, keep your dogs off the dunes and be sure to bring plenty of poop bags – and use them – so your furry pal doesn’t leave behind any unwanted surprises.

New Hanover County

Carolina Beach: Leashed dogs are allowed on the municipal beach strand anytime October 1-March 31 and only between 5 p.m. and 9 a.m. April 1-September 30. Town Council recently voted on the latter, making its municipal beach strand the only one in New Hanover County to allow dogs during peak tourism months, even with restricted hours.

Freeman Park, however, located off the municipal beach strand on the north end of Pleasure Island, has the following rules: Leashed dogs are allowed year-round during all hours. They may be unleashed and under voice control October 1-March 31 if the owner is within a reasonable distance.

Intracoastal Realty Agents Lend A Helping Hand at Martha’s Kitchen

Intracoastal Realty agents from our Carolina Beach office gathered together to support Martha’s Kitchen. Intracoastal agents were able to serve approximately 60 people and 100 plates of food for the evening. Shirley James coordinated the efforts and planned the participation for the office. Mary Kruszon presented a gift to the child who was celebrating a birthday in addition to the cake that was given for the celebration.

Martha’s Kitchen was started in 2005 by Bob and Ruth Hodge at First Baptist Church in Carolina Beach.  The ministry, named after Bob’s mother, was created to feed needy people living on Pleasure Island and anyone else who needs a hot meal.  At first, meals were provided every Tuesday.

Bob Hodge and Mike Hall from First Baptist came to a St. Paul’s United Methodist Men’s meeting In March 2012 to see if we would be willing to help.  The answer was an enthusiastic YES.  With the extra help, Martha’s Kitchen now provides hot meals to anyone in need every Tuesday and Thursday night.

The number of diners varies from 60 to 100 and over 40 St. Paul men and women have volunteered since 2012. Originally, we formed two teams with separate team leaders and service dates.  As time went on, we found that there were a number of volunteers who want to participate each time, so while we still have two teams, on paper, all volunteers are welcome to come to each meal we serve.

St Paul’s currently host the dinner on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays each month.
