Sunset Beach is a seaside town in Brunswick County, North Carolina, United States. Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Ingram Planetarium. Step out of the city life by going to Wrightsville Beach Municipal Complex and Bald Head Island Beach. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Brookgreen Gardens and Silver Coast Winery Tasting Room. Get out of town with these interesting Sunset Beach side-trips: North Carolina Aquarium At Fort Fisher (in Kure Beach), Southport (Kayaking & Canoeing, Franklin Square Gallery, & more) and Wrightsville Beach Museum of History (in Wrightsville Beach). There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at Kaminski House Museum, fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour, see the interesting displays at Rice Museum, and look for gifts at Callahan's of Calabash.
