I love ice cream. You could say that ice cream is a guilty pleasure of mine, or just simply understand that I become a child if there is an opportunity for me to get some ice cream, it’s just so good. Swansboro has the cutest little candy store that I have seen, and inside of that store they sell ice cream, candy (of course), pop corn, fudge, and cotton candy. This store is Candy Edventure and it is my favorite place in Swansboro. They have very accommodating hours which allows for you to enjoy a delicious treat after an early dinner on a weekend, whereas most other shops close late afternoon or early evening.
For dinner I have enjoyed Saltwater Grill which is absolutely delicious and comfortable inside, but we don’t regular the joint because it is a little bit more expensive than we typically prefer to spend.
With that being said, Church Street Deli is delicious and affordable. I have been dreaming about their sandwiches for a month now since I first ate there. They don’t have many options on their menu but what they do have is worth it. I don’t think an addition of fried pickles would hurt anything though. 😉
Hammocks Beach State Park is such a nice place as well, the mainland portion of the park is beautiful with a nicely landscaped waterfront and rentals or ferry rides to Bear Island. I highly recommend a visit to Hammocks Beach if you’re in the area.
