Planes, Boats & Automobiles: MCAS Cherry Point Air Show, Crystal Coast Boat Show & More


It's another packed weekend of events here on the Crystal Coast of North Carolina. We can't help but think of the classic comedy film Planes, Trains and Automobiles starring John Candy and Steve Martin. Though nothing can compare to their misadventures in transportation, we can guarantee that you'll find land, sea and air adventures of your very own this weekend in our local towns and on our waterfronts.
