WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC - (WECT) - Sunday marked the unofficial start of summer tourist according to Wrightsville Beach area businesses. Those at the Blockade Runner Beach Resort say that they were sold out over the Easter weekend due to all of the travelers.
"This is now leading up to spring break for a lot of schools in North Carolina so they started off their spring break with us, coming down to Wrightsville Beach and spending the weekend with us here and some of them are staying through the week" said employee Jason St. Claire.
Even though the weather was cool and Easter came earlier this year than previous years, St. Claire says it didn't stop people from coming to the beach.
