Although there has been a lot of people moving in over the past years, Southport is still pretty much a locals kind of place. I have coffee every morning with 6-10 guys who parents and grand parents lived here in Southport. We even have a Locals Restaurant. If you move in, you may never become a LOCAL. However, everyone is friendly and it is very easy to make friends and become excepted.
Retiring to Southport in 2000, it has been everything I thought it might be and more. Speaking of being welcomed, I have served on the Southport Planning Board, Southport Board of Adjustment, Southport Transportation Committee, and am a past president of the local Lions club. Best place I have ever lived.
Loving it in Southport
