Your Coastal Carolina Connection tidbit on
Fort Macon State Park
Fort Macon is a historic landmark offering public access to the surf, sun and sand of the Crystal Coast. Located at the eastern end of Bogue Banks, one of a series of barrier islands along the North Carolina coast, the park is surrounded on three sides by water-the Atlantic Ocean, Beaufort Inlet and Bogue Sound. My kids enjoy meeting their friends a the beach there-it is clean and spacious.
The park is also home to a Civil War fort with a history as intricate and unique as the waterways of the sound. General Robert E Lee was hereas well as Confederate Troops in 1862.
Its fall into Union hands gave the Northern forces control of the North Carolina coast.
Visit Fort Macon to enjoy the land's natural beauty and soak up some history. There is a museum, exhibits and audio tutorials to learn by.
