Cape Lookout National Seashore Nominated as Nation’s Favorite Park Beach

Cape Lookout National Seashore Nominated as Nation’s Favorite Park Beach

the crystal coast, N.C. – Feb. 22, 2016 –The Crystal Coast of North Carolina – home to America’s Coolest Small Town, the No. 4 Best Spring Break Destination in the U.S. and some of the state’s Top 10 Beaches – is once again in the running for a major destination accolade. USA Today 10Best has nominated Cape Lookout National Seashore as one of the Nation’s Top 20 National Park Beaches, with the potential for this Coastal gem to be named the No. 1 favorite, Friday, March 18.

            Reminiscent of times past where wild horses roam freely on deserted beaches, Cape Lookout National Seashore, with its famed lighthouse, offers escapists a 56-mile stretch of underdeveloped shimmering beaches accessible only by boat.

            “Those who love and live in the Crystal Coast cherish Cape Lookout as one of the Southern Outer Bank’s most treasured gems,” said Carol Lohr, The Crystal Coast Tourism Authority executive director. “The beaches are unspoiled and stunning, and nothing beats the view of the Spanish Mustang horses running on Shackleford Banks.”

            “What an honor it is for Cape Lookout to be recognized in 2016 when the park is celebrating its 50th anniversary and the National Park Service is celebrating its 100th anniversary,” said Patrick Kenney, superintendent of Cape Lookout National Seashore. “We hope those who have experienced this special place will take the time to vote.”

Fans of Cape Lookout National Seashore may vote once a day at http://www.10best/awards/travel/best-national-park-beach/. Voting concludes Monday, March 14, at 11:59 am EDT.
