Coastal Living

Southeastern North Carolina is home to some of the most gorgeous beaches in the country.

Soft white sand and clear blue waters of Coastal North Carolina will evoke relaxation, inspiration, and pure enjoyment. Landscapes are decorated in canopies of live oak trees with Spanish moss and offer breathtaking views of winding rivers and grassy marshlands.

Wrightsville Beach

Our stunning island surrounded by the intracoastal waterway and the Atlantic Ocean.

No matter which direction you look on Wrightsville Beach, you will capture the beauty of the coast. Known for its water activities, fishing, and surfing, this beach is the perfect family destination for those who enjoy watching the sun rise or set in peaceful solace.

If you want more out of your daily beach trip, enjoy dining at one of the many fresh seafood restaurants, shopping at Mayfaire Towncenter, taking a walk on Johnnie Mercer’s Pier, or surf fishing in Masonboro Inlet. You’ll never run out of things to do!

Wonderful Wilmington

Our big city with small town charm.

Wilmington is rich in preserved history and culture, yet offers everything you could want and more. This includes an array of art museums and historic attractions, live theater at Thalian Hall, an active live music scene, unique shopping boutiques, authentic antique shops, and award-winning restaurants where you can enjoy fine dining before heading out to experience Wilmington’s eclectic nightlife.

Wilmington offers higher education and top healthcare options. The University of North Carolina at Wilmington and Cape Fear Community College  both offer many programs for continuing education. Expanding healthcare services include New Hanover Regional Medical Center, which is undergoing a major expansion, along with a new Orthopedic and Spine Hospital being added and the Zimmer Cancer Center.


Lovely Leland

The prefect home base.

With a population of around 15,000 and home to the gated community of Compass Pointe, Leland is a newly thriving North Carolina town, robust in energy, while retaining its small town personality.

Just a short drive from several spectacular Brunswick County beaches and just across the Cape Fear River from Wilmington,  the town is modernizing before its residents’ eyes – shopping centers, boutiques, restaurants, healthcare and world-class golf to go  along with a colorful history and natural charm.

Launch a kayak at Sturgeon Creek Park, Leland’s first water access, picnic at the eight-acre Leland Municipal Park, shop til you drop at the monthly Seaglass Salvage Market, or take in a concert or an art exhibit at the Leland Cultural Arts Building. Located in the heart of Coastal Southeastern North Carolina, Leland boosts a budding reputation in the region.

Temperate Year-Round Climate

The North Carolina coast is adored for its charm and subtropical climate that features four distinct seasons: warm summers, mild winters, and pleasant springs and falls. Outdoor activities include golfing at one of the 100+ area courses, boating, fishing, kayaking, biking, and trips to the beach can be enjoyed year-round.

Sub-Tropical, coastal climate
Four distinct seasons — average daily high is 74° (annually)
Mild winter — average daily high of 61° (November–February)
Summer — average daily high of 86° (May–August)

It’s no wonder why Carolinians exude Southern hospitality and offer a friendly wave to every visitor and passerby.
