May 20, 2017
Avid sailors and boating enthusiasts looking for the ideal place to live have the opportunity to spend an exhilarating Memorial Day Weekend on the Inner Banks of North Carolina at the award winning boating community of River Dunes. For those who don’t know, Grace Harbor Marina, the 28 acre River Dunes marina, is considered one of the top 10 “Best All-Around Marinas in the World” based on a 2015 survey by Marinas(dot)com. Marinalife magazine rated River Dunes as the “2015 Best Southern Destination.” River Dunes is more than a protected marina.
Here folks will find a friendly boating community who takes pride in coastal neighborhoods that complement the region. Traditional coastal architectural designs and indigenous landscaping sit upon 1,345 acres along the serene Pamlico Sound featuring an impressive 14 miles of shoreline. Here the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) meets the Pamlico Sound and Neuse River just beyond the 1,100 foot channel allowing boaters a direct path for exploring nearby coastal towns and the waterways leading to the Atlantic Ocean.
