Prepare to fall in love with the charming historic downtown district of the coastal city of Wilmington, North Carolina. Horse-drawn carriages still click along the downtown river walk and riverboats cruise its 300-year-old harbor, but the past is only part of the coastal city's story. What was once a busy port teaming with markets, warehouses and the world's largest cotton exchange has become a lively spot for arts, shopping, family activities, fine dining and nightlife. University life continues to grow and a new convention center has helped spawn a revitalization of the Cape Fear River business district. The Port City has its fair share of annual festivals to draw visitors from across the globe — from the North Carolina Azalea Festival, to River Fest, to the Cucalorus Film Festival.


Leland, NC, known as The Gateway to Brunswick County, is nestled along the west banks of the Brunswick River.

Its strategic location also offers convenient access to Myrtle Beach, the coastal town of Southport, and the New Hanover and Brunswick County beaches. However, Leland is building an allure all its own. As more people move into the area, Leland, NC sees more and more new neighborhood developments, golf courses and recreational activities, shopping and dining opportunities, festivals, services and businesses. Along with that growth, real estate in the form of new homes, apartments and long-term rentals has been increasing exponentially.

Kure Beach

Kure Beach is located between the Atlantic Ocean and the Cape Fear River, near the southeastern tip of North Carolina. The Town's incorporated limits begin on the south side of Alabama Avenue (the north side of this road is in Carolina Beach) and go all the way down to the entrance of the Fort Fisher State Historic Site. Along with our clean, expansive beach, we are surrounded by nature with vistas of the ocean and the river. Our wooden boardwalk, peppered with benches and oceanfront swings, spans over one-third of a mile along the ocean front where you'll find lots of people relaxing and enjoying the beach. There is also a 711-foot, privately owned fishing pier. Originally built in 1923, it is the oldest fishing pier on the East Coast. The pier draws fishermen from all over and gives our business area the feel of a quaint fishing village. The area is perfect for biking, kayaking, swimming, surfing, hiking, going for a walk or just lounging on the beach. Plus, our Town is compact enough that you are never further than a mile from the ocean.


Hampstead is located between the beach communities of Surf City and Topsail Island. Once a small fishing village and whistle stop on the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad, Hampstead is one of the fastest growing areas in the state as more and more people flock to the coast for easy living on our waterways, creeks, and golf courses. Known as “The Seafood Capital of the Carolinas,” Hampstead is home to many local seafood vendors and a growing number of restaurants. Hampstead also offers a diverse array of shopping. From eclectic boutiques to mainstream storefronts, you are sure to find a unique memento. Mark your calendar for Mother’s Day weekend and join us for the “Celebrate Hampstead” Festival, a local tradition of businesses and arts colliding for the benefit of the Greater Hampstead Chamber of Commerce and the Topsail Schools’ arts programs.


Topsail is the kind of place made for memorable family beach vacations, soaking in some sunny rays, or relaxing in the many sources of tepid water. It is cutely tucked away off the beaten path of North Carolina’s better-known beaches. However, it is an easy hour’s drive or less to Wilmington to the south, and Jacksonville and USMC Camp Lejeune to the north. Surfers ride the waves while fishermen toss their lines off the piers. No trip to the island is complete without a visit to the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center in Topsail Beach, or the Missiles and More Museum, which reveals the island’s fascinating history as a top-secret missile launch site during World War II.  Come on over the bridge and discover what some quaint, hospitable, and lovely living is all about.
