Come for a day and you’ll stay for a lifetime. The quaint historic City of Southport is an ideal choice for any relocating individual, family or business. City of Southport area businesses and residents enjoy an unparalleled quality of life. Southern hospitality, a rich history, natural beauty, warm weather and year-round activities and events, are just a few of the reasons many are happy to call the area home.
Melynda Dovel Wilcox said it best in a 1992 Kiplinger Personal Finance Magazine article entitled “Retirement Spots That Feel Like Home.” About the Southport-Oak Island Area she wrote:
“an authentic community with school buses, college students, working families – instead of planned communities of look-alike houses. Quiet streets instead of congested mall parking lots, changing seasons rather than endless summers and a chance to stand out and be different rather than blend in with the other retirees…also a low-to-moderate cost of living.”
