North Carolina is home to two national seashores, seven coastal lighthouses and more than 300 miles of barrier island beaches, nearly all of it accessible. Sandy expanses in the Tar Heel State are often remote and rarely crowded, and a charming Southern coastal town is rarely far away. Which beach wins your vote?
