The chairs allow users to roll down the beach and get their feet wet in the ocean. The chairs aren’t motorized or user-propelled; you’ll need someone else to provide the horsepower. There’s no fee, but advance reservations are a must. Last year, the chairs were in and out of the office all summer long. The Parks and Rec office is located at 1 Bob Sawyer Drive in Wrightsville Beach. Call (910) 256-7925 for more information.
