Crystal Coast, North Carolina
Nine distinct regions dot 85 miles of shoreline in North Carolina's Crystal Coast, giving your drone a diverse stash of footage that can be collected on a single trip. Worthwhile stops: Downtown marinas in Beaufort, the pier in Atlantic Beach, and the tranquil shorelines on Emerald Isle. Bring your still camera and binoculars, too. You’ll want to snap photos of the wild mustangs that roam free in Shackleford Banks as well as the not-to-miss lighthouse at Cape Lookout National Seashore (both the lighthouse and the mustangs’ range fall in U.S. National Park Service territory, where there’s an all-out ban on flying recreational drones).
In your downtime: Make a tee time and play 18 holes on a seaside course at North River Resort, a championship course in Beaufort, N.C.
