Senior citizens eating food prepared by chef on tableWhere the Cape Fear River and the Atlantic Ocean meet, stunning scenery, rich maritime history and a quintessential brand of coastal living become reality here in our native Southport. Known for a relaxed ambiance and the “salubrious” breezes that are said to promote health and well-being, Southport manages to preserve and enjoy its history, all while imparting some modern-day amenities and experiences that keep life feeling fresh and new. 

Visitors and townspeople alike can become immersed in history all across Southport, starting with the Fort Johnston – Southport Museum. With roots dating back to 1749, the site played a part in wars and conflicts that helped shape the nation we now live in today. There’s also the North Carolina Maritime Museum and the Old Brunswick County Jail Museum

If Southport looks a little familiar, it might be because it’s provided the setting for many movies and TV shows over the years. Various walking and self-guided tours make for fascinating journeys through history, culture and film and do much to make Southport feel like a living museum all its own.   

History isn’t all that’s worth exploring in Southport, though. The downtown waterfront is also home to the Southport Pier and Riverwalk, a wide selection of waterfront restaurants and eateries, and Franklin Square Park, a popular gathering spot which plays home to seasonal events and festivals held throughout the year. 

Art lovers will want to check out the Franklin Square Gallery, which showcases works from local artists, while the stage at Brunswick Little Theater has been featuring plays, musicals and other productions for more than 35 years. Add in the wealth of opportunities for boating, fishing, watersports, sunset and dinner cruises and Southport has entertainment options to suit most anyone. 

Indeed, for the familiar comforts of small-town living, but with big-time possibilities for fun and exploration, Southport sure checks a lot of boxes. That’s yet another reason why TerraBella Southport provides a perfect setting for living well and enjoying life right here along the incomparable Carolina coast.
