Take a guided tour of the Fort Fisher State Historic Site, set amidst twisted live oaks on the west side of U.S. Highway 421. Fort Fisher was the largest of the Confederacy's earthwork fortifications during the Civil War, and served as an arm of Camp Davis during World War II. It features 4 miles of wide, unspoiled beach, a visitor center and a public boat launch for windsurfing, parasailing, kite boarding, kayaking and fishing. The Fort Fisher Southport Ferry is a worthwhile $5 cruise.
