Southport, NC Real Estate

''Up and coming' is not an exaggerated way to describe this once tiny, historical fishing town, Southport, North Carolina. Nestled in the middle between the South Carolina border and Wilmington, Southport's distance from the busy city life and its peaceful boating atmosphere make it possible to live the best of both worlds. The coastal town is small enough to maintain its peaceful atmosphere but is growing into a wonderful resource for all of your needs.
