This area of the Carolinas certainly has some amazing natural attributes, but the most unusual of all may be the Venus flytrap. Perhaps you have heard of it. The modified leaves of this plant close rapidly when an insect touches tiny hairs on the leaves’ inside, trapping the insect, which then becomes dinner. The Venus flytrap grows only on land located within a 60-mile radius of Wilmington, North Carolina. Carolina Beach State Park has a trail where you can see this unusual plant. The park also has a fine, lesser-used campground as well as many attractions within a 10-mile radius of the campground, such as beaches, historic sites, and even an aquarium.
