Kure Beach Reviews

2 reviews
Living at the beach is truly a privilege. My parents have worked very hard to establish a home for us in this small community. Since I haven't lived anywhere else, it is hard to compare it other places. New homes are continually being built here and new people are always on the horizon. The tourists are a little annoying, but that comes with the territory of living here. It is beautiful and peaceful from fall to spring. That's my favorite time.
