BOLIVIA, NC (Dec. 5, 2012) – When the clock strikes 12 on December 31, where will the party be? Amidst noisy revelers in a high-rise above the frigid city below? In a hotel ballroom full of couples dancing to the latest rock band? Or how about by the shore, surrounded by friends and loved ones? If the last option sounds best, then head for North Carolina’s Brunswick Islands.

The holidays are a favorite time of year for many beach visitors. Bright sunny days are followed by cool evenings under a sky blanketed with winter stars. There’s no place more calm, hopeful or inspiring to welcome in the new year.
