Visit Southport, North Carolina, and it won’t take long to figure out why locals and visitors alike regard it as one of the most unique and authentic coastal communities. Comprising just over two square miles, this stunning village seamlessly combines lush coastal landscapes, historic residences, and miles of water in every direction, making it both the epitome of maritime and southern communities with its own distinct culture. Its appearance is so delightful, it has been the setting for dozens of movies and television series, and its rich maritime history is displayed along the streets of downtown Southport. In short, prospective homebuyers seeking a community with genuine coastal charm will definitely want to consider the real estate in Southport.
Contributing to its unique culture is its distinctive location, jutting out into the Cape Fear River at the edge of the mainland of southern North Carolina. Southport is bordered by large and small vacation destination barrier islands on almost all sides. Moreover, it is only a few miles from where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Cape Fear River, making it a necessary stop for maritime travelers, small shipping vessels, and commercial fishermen along the nearby Intracoastal Waterway. The community’s discovery and its later growth resulted from this unique waterfront locale. Southport is very well-established, incorporated in 1792 as Smithville, then renamed Southport in 1887. The population has always been relatively small with roughly 2,300 year-round residents, but it welcomes innumerable visitors to its Waterfront Park, a town pier, many restaurants and lounges with spectacular water views, almost one dozen marinas, and several boardwalks to explore.
Additional amenities and attractions in Southport include the renowned North Carolina Maritime Museum, the Peacock House, the Northrop House, and a charming downtown full of historic homes.
