They say it’s about the journey, not the destination. And that’s especially true when that journey is being made in a new Buick or GMC.

If you’re planning a trip to one of the top destinations near Jacksonville, NC, let Moore Buick GMC help you enjoy the journey. Below are the top 3 destinations near Jacksonville to take a Buick or GMC vehicle for a spin.

3 Perfect Spots for a Drive in Your Buick or GMC

Bogue Sound in a Buick Cascada

Start your journey by dropping the top in a new Buick Cascada convertible at Atlantic Beach. Then point the Cascada’s LED daytime running lights west on Highway 58 and cruise the 17-mile waterway stretch to Emerald Isle. The Cascada was named one of Autobytel’s Top 10 Lease Expensive Convertibles, joining the ranks of the Camaro and the Mustang, and is the ideal car for a waterfront joyride.  

You’ll have the Bogue Sound to your right, the Atlantic Ocean to your left and the wind on your face as you cruise past the Theodore Roosevelt State Natural Area, Indian Beach, Pine Knoll Shores, and the Emerald Isle Pier. Continue to follow Highway 58 as it takes you over the sound where you’ll catch Highway 24 and a 25-mile sprint to the heart of Jacksonville.

Croatan National Forest in a GMC Terrain

The great outdoors is best experienced from inside the cabin of a new GMC Terrain. From Jacksonville, take Highway 17 North for about 16 miles until you reach Croatan National Forest. Once inside the park, you’ll be treated to rich green forest and five large lakes on roads both paved and graveled.

Take advantage of the Terrain’s 63.3 cubic feet of cargo room and pack enough gear to enjoy Croatan’s hiking, picnic, and fishing amenities. Or utilize the Terrain’s 1,500 pounds of towing capacity to take a small boat or water toy onto the Great Lake or Catfish Lake boat launches.   

Downtown Jacksonville in a Buick Verano

There’s plenty to do in downtown Jacksonville and the Buick Verano is the perfect car to do it in. At just 71.4 inches wide and with a tight turning radius, the nimble Verano gets you in and out of tight city spaces with ease. And with available technology such as a Rear Vision Camera, Rear Park Assist and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, you’ll have eyes on all sides to help you parallel park, make U-turns and navigate the other challenges of tight downtown driving.

Plus, with seating for five and a built-in WiFi hotspot, the Verano is perfect for a night out with the whole family. The available Buick Intellilink helps you find restaurants, gas stations, movie theaters, and more while also keeping you up-to-date on traffic and weather conditions during your downtown stay.
