Rodanthe Among USA Today Travel “Experience Beach” Section “Most Romantic Mid-Atlantic Beaches.”

Of Rodanthe, the article said, “Made famous by the romantic Nicholas Sparks novel, Nights in Rodanthe (which was turned into a movie starring Richard Gere and Diane Lane), this quiet beach in the Outer Banks provides the perfect backdrop for real-life romance.
