The Social Media Stars of Southeastern North Carolina

When you move to a brand-new city, it can take a while to get settled in – even if that place is as idyllic as southeastern North Carolina. Not only do you have to unpack and decorate your new home, you also need to find a new favorite grocery store, the fastest way to get to the public library, and where the best free parks are located. While you can ask your new neighbors and take your time exploring, there’s another strategy for learning your way around your new town: social media!

At this point in time, many cities and their citizens are active on social media, and following the right accounts is a great way to get the inside scoop on what’s happening around you. If you’re new to Onslow County, you’re in luck—we’ve put together a must-follow list of the movers and shakers in our area. Follow these folks and you’ll feel like a local in no time!

Onslow County Government  

The local government uses social media to keep its citizens informed, educated, and entertained. A proud community dedicated to serving the people, following their accounts is practically a requirement. Find them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for the latest news!

Onslow County Public Library

We love the library! Between the books, the movies, the music, and the great events it’s an integral part of our community. Lucky for us, the library has a robust presence on social media, where they offer a behind-the-scenes look at their activities, previews of events, and book reviews. Find them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Only in Onslow  

Run by Onslow County Tourism, this organization will let you know about all the fun things there are to do in Onslow County, Jacksonville, and the surrounding areas. Give them a follow on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. And don’t forget to use the hashtag #OnlyInOnslow when sharing your posts!

One of the most popular Instagram accounts in nearby Wilmington, What’s Up Wilmington is a great account to follow if you love eye candy. Their photos feature beautiful beach scenes and great meals that can be found all over the Port City.
