Wrightsvillle Beach Parking - $2.50 Per Hour



If you're preparing to visit Wrightsville Beach this weekend, keep in mind that the cost of parking went up to to $2.50 per hour this year. It may seem a little pricey but many consider a fun-filled day at Wrightsville Beach priceless. Compared to dinner and a movie, it is certainly a bargain! To keep things in perspective, please note that a portion of the parking fees go directly to beach renourishment.

The island community's Mayor Pro Tem, Darryl Mills, acknowledged the price increase and noted, "The amount we've been setting aside is really nothing compared to the cost of the project and I see this as a way to start generating funds." As a result of the increase, a day pass has increased from $12 to $15, and a weekly pass is now $75. Paid parking hours are from 9:00 am until 6:00 pm. The good news is that new meters were installed this year that accommodate credit and debit cards. Now that is a welcome change compared to digging through your pockets and glove compartments for the other kind of change!
