Best 10 Tips on How to Buy Discounted Flight Tickets Everyone who travels wants to save as much as possible when flying. Why would you want to pay the regular going cost when you can get flight tickets cheaper? I have provided a few clever ways of saving yourself a ton of money on your next air trip. 1) Book online instead of offline; you’ll save money from the paper processing fee.

2) Clear out your cookies. Why? Many travel websites use the cookies to log when you search for a particular route and will quote you higher when you return to that site to search again. 3) Many airline websites update their airfare shortly after midnight. A little research about the route you are looking will help

Buying a separate seat for your child is really expensive. 6) Be ready and open to have different departure and return dates. Mark “anytime” in the search window. 7) Buy flight tickets during the off-season periods; flight tickets are usually cheaper. 8) Buy flight tickets in advance; you can save a lot.

9) Buy from an air courier service; these are companies that will buy your luggage space in exchange for lower-priced tickets. 10) If you fly a lot, join a frequent flyer program; such a program offers long-term discounts. by: George Alarcon

North Carolina

North Carolina’s coast boasts something for everyone From the Cape Lookout to Sunset Beach and all points in between, North Carolina’s coast boasts pristine beaches, resort towns and century old retreats to fit every taste and budget. A haven of sunbathers, Atlantic Beach is home to wide pearlescent beaches and plenty of sunshine. Part of the Bogue Banks, Atlantic Beach is the oldest of five resort towns. Visitors have the liberty to choose from a range of accommodations for all budgets and lifestyles, from a seven bedroom Victorian mansion to a “no frills” beach bungalow. Fort Macon State Park, the site of an historic Civil War skirmish, and not just a few tales of ghostly encounters with uniformed soldiers, is located at the tip of the island and is one of the links in the monumental Civil

Topsail Island

North Carolina

War Trails. Fort Macon is ideal for active vacationers who like to experience it all, from shore fishing and hiking to swimming and picnicking. Emerald Isle is known as the most prominent of the banks on the Crystal Coast. Named for the lush greenery that covers much of the area, Emerald Isle is located at the western end of the Bogue Banks. Accommodations dotting the coastline range from quaint beach cottages and condominiums to mammoth beach houses known locally as “sand castles.” Visitors have the freedom to spend their days exploring un-crowded coastline, dining at casually elegant restaurants, shopping at fanciful boutiques filled with coastal treasures or setting sail on private chartered fishing excursions.

Reminiscent of times past where wild horses roam freely on deserted beaches, the Cape Lookout National Seashore, with its famed lighthouse, offers escapists a 56-mile stretch of undeveloped shimmering beaches accessible only by boat. Sea oat laced sand dunes and miles of large unbroken conch shells seem like they have been resting there for centuries. In harmony with the natural scenery are fishermen patiently waiting and watching, like shore birds, looking for their next meal to spring out of the frothy blue waters. Information provided by the Crystal Coast Tourism Authority, visit www.CrystalCoastNC.org or call 1-800-786-6962. Lying along North Carolina’s southeastern coast, Topsail Island is a 26-mile barrier island that reaches from 500 to 1,500 feet wide. The Island is accessible by an old-fashioned swing bridge

and a modern high-rise bridge and is composed of three towns North Topsail Beach, Surf City and Topsail Beach. On the mainland, our area includes the towns of Sneads Ferry and Holly Ridge. While visiting the Topsail area, you will enjoy some of the most pristine, uncrowded beaches along the east coast. Here you will witness coastal wildlife flourishing in its natural environment and enjoy some of the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets found on the North Carolina coast. Information provided by The Greater Topsail Area Chamber of Commerce and Tourism, www.TopsailCOC.com or 800-626-2780. With warm waters for swimming and uncrowded sands for sunning yourself, Oak Island invites you to the ideal family beach vacation. Fifty-two beach access points along the windswept shore assure you of

plenty opportunities to dive in, and relaxing days spent searching for seashells, building sandcastles and taking long walks are sure to refresh and delight the whole family. A beautiful, resort-style island for families to visit, Ocean Isle Beach is also very attractive to majestic, yet endearing, sea turtles. Eight miles of beach house sea-turtle eggs and hatchlings for almost half the year, and if you’re lucky, you may get the chance to spot some yourself. Visit Ocean Isle Beach to learn all about these amazing creatures, as well as enjoy a vacation your family will always remember. Beautiful for its sunrises and sunsets over the water, Sunset Beach is a haven for birds of all kinds. From this island you can walk to Bird Island at low tide, where you’re likely to see a variety of species nesting or Continued next page

Close by the Cape Fear Coast beach communities, Wilmington has a charm and style all its own – befitting an historic port city with roots that go back almost three centuries and the energy of a thriving destination.

Welcome to Sunset Beach, NC

the classic summer playgrounds of years gone by. It’s all here: the fishing piers filled with kids and old-timers alike angling for their first big one. The boardwalk, perfect for evening strolls and ice cream cones. The arcades, as challenging and addictive as when you were a teenager. The gazebo, paddleboats and miniature golf. And of course the clean, uncrowded ribbon of beach by the warm ocean waters. Kure Beach is a little bit further down the beach, at the southern tip of Pleasure Island. A little bit more off the beaten track. And filled with a lot of what you’re hoping to find: expansive beaches, scenic views (you can see the ocean and the river), relaxed people enjoying a relaxing atmosphere, and the kind of character that seems to have all but disappeared from coastal towns.

It used to be you could only get to Wrightsville Beach by water. Today you can use the bridge, but the island retains its village-like feel and wonderful sense of remove from everyday cares. A clean, uncluttered stretch of white sand and sparkling water just begs for swimming, sunbathing, beachcombing, and fishing. The athletic at heart can take on the Loop, a fitness trail that circles the inner island. Bargain hunters gravitate to the beachside stores and distinctive, welcoming shopping village. Boaters launch from full-service marinas, and history buffs soak up the local museum and narrated scenic cruises along the Intracoastal Waterway that offer a glimpse into the island’s past.
