Too bad, Florida: North Carolina beach called best in the nation

Move over Florida and Hawaii. Your beaches are no longer the best. The nation's best place to get a tan and enjoy the ocean's waves in 2007 is North Carolina's Ocracoke Island, a place so remote that even ... Full Story

I live in NC for 4 years while I was in the military. The longer I was there the more I enjoyed the state. Florida may have some nice features but N.C. gives you the beach, the country, and the mountains all in one state. Plus its much cheaper to live there. People being much more friendly is not a bad thing either. I am moving back first chance I get.

Florida beaches suck!! The sand is gross, there not monitored and it just sucks! Even NJ beaches are better then Florida and thats a fact! The beaches need to go private to keep them clean and keep the rif-raft out!!!

I've been to Coronado Beach ...way awesome and full of fun, laid-back Cali peeps. Another gem is Assateague in Virginia. Unspoiled, beautiful and the horse run on the beach each year rocks.

OK OK LET MACHO CHIME IN HERE. I MAY BE FROM GREENSBORO, NORTH CAROLINA. AND I MAY DO MUSHROOMS WITH "RAVE WIDE-ITZ" BUT I GOTTA TELL YOU. THERE AIN'T NO "MACHO" AT OCRACOKE. THE BEST BEACH IN THE UNITER STATES IS ANYWHERE I PLANT MY EXTREMELY SKIMPY SPEEDO. FOR THE LAST 6 YEARS IT HAS BEEN AT THE OLD 1-2. MY LIFEGUARD STAND IS LIKE A MINI SCORPIO MOTEL (for all of you who grew up in north miami beach). MY BEACH IS A TOURIST DESTINATION. MY LIFEGUARD STAND IS A UNITED NATIONS. I HAVE HAD CHICKS FROM BOLIVIA TO BRAZIL. FROM ITALY TO IRELAND, THEY ALL LOVE MACHO.

I MAY FLOAT OR SING THE PRAISES OF LIBERACE AND CHARLES NELSON REILLY BUT MAKE NO MISTAKE. I AM CHISELED AND BUFFED. THE OLD 1-2 IS THE BEST BEACH IN THE NATION.

Is it called the old 1-2 because your manhood is 1" long that gives 2 seconds of pleasure?

We cashed out of Aventura a year ago and moved to NC ~ we have never looked back. Ocracoke is stunning, but I have to say that SoFL has the most beautiful clear water beaches I have ever seen ~ you will not catch me swimming in the MidAtlantic murky water!

Don't worry, with all the people moving from FL to NC, the people will also be less friendly just like FL use to be 30 years ago. The Hispanics and Haitians tend to do that to a community.

North Carolina has a coast, not a beach. A beach is that nice place that has white sand and warm, clear blue waters.

Hypothermic coastal areas do not a beach make, no matter how much nature it may have.

The best beaches that the continental US has are in Florida, period.

Doesn't sound like a very accurate list. He removed the previous year's winners from consideration? So basically all of the best beaches have been removed and it's the best of what's left

This article made me so happy, I am moving to NC in August and I can't wait. I have seen so many negative changes here in Sou Fla over the years. Our carribian friends have totally ruined it and it continues to slid down hill. I will not look back, will the last one that leave please take the American Flag with them.

This is nothing but a thinly veiled ad to promote tourism in the Carolinas. The whole world knows that Florida has some of the most pristine and beautiful natural beaches anywhere. Some beaches in South Florida might be over-crowded, but tourists from around the world who never heard of Carolina keep coming here by the millions to vacation.
