New Client Announcement: Sunset Beach, North Carolina

by Shylo Bisnett, on February 12, 2021 at 8:32 AM

As the short-term rental industry has grown, visitors have been able to discover charming communities all across the United States. One of those destinations is Sunset Beach, NC.

Tucked just north of the border between the Carolinas and straddling the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean, Sunset Beach is a bit of perfection that lives up to its name. Travelers have long sought out this town, but growth had been stymied by the one-lane swing bridge that restricted the flow of traffic in and out of Sunset Beach. But in 2010, the bridge, which would close for ten minutes every hour to let boats pass, was replaced by an ultramodern flyover that allowed for a free flow of cars between Sunset Beach and the rest of the county. Tourism boomed, and so did population.

With a consumer-style registration and payment platform, Localgov helps communities support and monetize its short-term rental industry. Plus, through deep data insights and ordinance reviews, its finance leaders can make sure they have a thorough understanding of this market.

A Look at Sunset Beach, NC

  • While the Sunset Beach Swing Bridge is no longer in use, visitors can learn all about it and tread on its planks at the Sunset Beach Swing Bridge & Museum.

  • For stargazers and learners of all ages, the Ingram Planetarium deserves a spot on your itinerary. Laser shows, educational programs, and space exploration. 

  • Just outside Sunset Beach is Bird Island. Through the dogged efforts of environmentalists and residents, this unique landscape has been protected as a Coastal Reserve. Home to sand dunes, salt marshes, shrub thickets, and more, Bird Island offers refuge for a stunning array of waterfowl, mammals, and the threatened loggerhead turtle.
