Car City is proud to have four locations that provide our customers access to high-quality pre-owned vehicles. Of our four dealerships, one is in Conway, South Carolina, with the other three located in Whiteville, Lumberton, and, Calabash, North Carolina.

For today’s blog, we’d like to take a closer look at the small town of Calabash, North Carolina, and everything it has to offer — in addition to our selection of used cars.

How Calabash, NC, Is Serving up a Style All Its Own

As towns go, Calabash, NC, is still relatively new. After being incorporated in 1973, this once tiny fishing village has grown into a flourishing small town with 1,868 year-long residents. Known as “The Seafood Capital of the World,” this coastal community boasts over 30 restaurants that serve Calabash Style Seafood — the dish Calabash is known for.

The main ingredient in Calabash seafood is freshly caught fish. You may not think there’s a difference between fresh caught and the fish you buy in the grocery store, but don’t say that to any residents of this town! All it takes is one bite of Calabash signature style seafood — and you’ll taste the difference, too.

Calabash also hosts a variety of activities during the summer that are both family-friendly and fun.

Take a trip to Calabash Community Park every Tuesday evening at 6 for a free concert as part of the Calabash Concert Series. The whole family will enjoy a variety of rock, rhythm and blues, and beach music.

The Fourth of July fireworks are always a big hit, sponsored by the Calabash Fire Department. Fun and games begin at 6:00 pm next to Captain John’s Seafood House with a bounce house for the kids and a dunk tank for of all ages. Your emcee for the night is the fire department’s own Jimmy “Two Wraps” Bruno, who specializes in beach music the whole family can enjoy. The department will be holding a raffle where the winner gets to drive off in a custom, street legal golf cart!

As you can see, a lot is happening in Calabash, North Carolina, this summer. Make sure your pre-owned vehicle is up to the task by visiting our service center or research our available inventory to find a summer upgrade.
