55+ Communities: Insider Information for mature adults

Why Move to Wilmington and the Surrounding Area?

Attracted by the low cost of living, magnificent sandy beaches, and
mild seasonal climates, it's easy to understand why more and more active
adults are relocating or buying second homes on the coast of southeastern
North Carolina. Situated between the Cape Fear River and the Atlantic
Ocean, Wilmington and the surrounding coastal areas are an idyllic
location for individuals seeking the fun, beauty and relaxation inherent in
the oft-coveted beach lifestyle.

Beach lovers here choose between playing on surfing and sailing
beaches, relaxing on the quiet residential beaches, or experiencing the
serenity of the undeveloped barrier islands and river inlets. Private beach
access and boat slips are essentials at many of the popular Active Adult
Communities. It's not just the beaches that give this area its appeal
though. It's also a golfer's paradise. The area is heavily dotted with
challenging coastal golf courses, providing golfers with a seemingly
endless supply of courses to master. Residents enjoy the small town
southern charm of the towns and fishing villages that line the long stretch
of coast, as well as the cultural attractions, educational opportunities and
excitement found in the historic port city of Wilmington itself.

Adults 65 and over comprise 20.6% of Brunswick County's
population and 13.8% of New Hanover County's population. They
comprise 12.9% in the state as a whole. The sheer number of Active
Adult Communities and their focus on sea-life and water recreation make
this area a unique place to for active adults to spend their retirement
