Our Area

Coastal North Carolina

A Cultural Gem

New Hanover County has much to offer our residents and guests. From art galleries and antiques to fine dining, shopping, and miles of beaches, the Cape Fear Area is an excellent place to live, work and retire. Hailed as a “cultural gem” by Coastal Living Magazine’s May 2009 issue, Wilmington has something for everyone.

Riverfront Views

Downtown Wilmington’s beautiful riverfront emerges from the Cape Fear River and maintains its integrity as one of North Carolina’s largest historic districts. Downtown landmarks can be toured by horse-drawn carriage, river boat cruises, trolley cars or walking. The area is also home to many premier golf courses, an eclectic array of restaurants and cafes; as well as popular shops and boutiques.

Sun & Surf

Another great advantage to living here is that our area is flanked by miles of pristine beaches. From Wrightsville Beach to Carolina Beach, you’re sure to find your favorite spot to relax in the sun and surf. Fishing, snorkeling, kayaking, boating and jet skiing are just some exciting adventures available at our coastal getaway
