With so many fun things to do – it’s no wonder why Coastal North Carolina is such a popular retirement destination. The residents at Ocean Ridge Plantation, located in Ocean Isle Beach, have a wide selection of activities both within the community and in the surrounding area.
Ocean Ridge Plantation is best known for their ‘Big Cat’ golf courses. The Tiger’s Eye, Panther’s Run, Lion’s Paw, Leopard’s Chase, and Jaguar’s Lair all offer 18 Championship holes of golf. After a long day of golfing, residents can relax and enjoy the indoor and outdoor pools or take in a few quiet moments in the sauna.
Within the community, there are lighted tennis courts so residents can enjoy the wonderful North Carolina weather well into the evening. Ocean Ridge Plantation also offers miles of walking and biking trails around the property. Sunset Beach is only three minutes from the community, and Ocean Ridge Plantation has a private beachside clubhouse available exclusively for residents.
In Ocean Isle Beach and surrounding communities, active adults can enjoy turtle watching during the turtle nesting season of May through August. There are also free outdoor concerts all summer long throughout Brunswick County.
When grandchildren visit for the holidays, Ocean Ridge Plantation residents can visit the popular Ripley’s Aquarium which is open 365 days a year. The lighthouses on North Carolina’s coast are also a popular destination – Oak Island Lighthouse, just one of many, stands tall at 153 feet and was once the brightest lighthouse in the United States.
