Default Jacksonville N.C. ???

Well I'm off with my buddy to Jacksonville, actually, Camp Lejeune, to see his son before he heads to Irauq ( Feb 27th)
We leave from Whitehorse Yukon, Canada.
I've checked out a few things on the net, but would like some feedback from people who know the area, good steak house, decent hotel, areas to see, and maybe some to steer clear off??

After 3 days with Ronnie we head down to Daytona 500.

Now one further thing, we had to supply the Marine with a laser scope for his M16, as they don't get one otherwise, do you think this is bogus?? ( and no sidearms at all???)
Thanks,
Ken.

Best hotels & retaurants (IMO) are on the east side of hwy 24 / town towards Swansboro.

Lots of water scenery to be seen...

If the Corp believes you need it, they issue it...

Triple Jack,

I want to thank your son for his honor and duty to serve this country. I also want to wish him safety and you and your family comfort during his time in harms way. Thank You.

The better places to stay and eat will be in Swansboro. There is a small hole in the wall type of restaurant down there called Red Barn that has good seafood for great prices. I've never tried any steakhouses down that way but there are a few good ones farther east in Morehead City and Beaufort.

Well said Tireless.

Thanks guys, I'll check out the Red Barn, sounds like a place you'll only find with a local tip.
Ken.

I can't remember the exact directions to Red Barn but someone down there should be able to point you in the right direction. I think you will enjoy it.
