Swansboro is a quaint little town on the coast of North Carolina. It is welcoming and a nice place to relax if you are a 60+years old. Honestly, I lovely place to live and a nice town but for the older generations not the young.
Swansboro is a great little town and very family oriented. Great for people who like to be near the water, as the intra coastal runs right through it.
