10 Reasons to Retire in Brunswick County NC

Margie Casey's Blog:

Wilmington and Brunswick County are among the fastest growing cities in the coastal region of North Carolina. This area has seen 20% growth between 2005 and 2010. Another 20% is expected between 2010 and 2020. It appears Baby Boomer's who are considering relocating are going ‘retro’ migrating back to revitalized historic cities. The English colonist’s founded Wilmington NC in the early 1700‘s along the Cape Fear River to harvest the rich natural resources. During World War II, Wilmington NC became a ship building city and important coastal port. Wilmington NC is named one of the Best Places to Live by Money Magazine and here is why we agree:

  • Best Beaches - Wrightsville Beach is the closest beach to downtown Wilmington NC and is only 10 minutes from the golf community Landfall Country Club. Wrightsville Beach is named one of theTop 10 Surf Towns in the U.S. by Surfer Magazine and is a great place to people watch, grab a foot long hot dog at the Trolley Grill or savor local seafood at the award winning South Beach Grill. Local’s and retirees prefer Carolina Beach, Kure Beach and Fort Fisher known as Pleasure Island. These Brunswick County beaches are less crowded, less commercialized and have charming boardwalks and fishing piers. Holden Beach, Oak Island and Sunset Beach to the south of Wilmington NC are more beaches to soak up the sun.
