The Cape Fear River 

The breathtakingly beautiful and endlessly entertaining Cape Fear River will set RiverLights™ apart from any other waterfront community in the Wilmington area.

At 202 miles long, the Cape Fear River Basin is the largest in North Carolina, running through 27 counties. With the river’s historical associations with commerce and as a social center point, it’s no wonder that Wilmington has the reputation for being a bustling port community. For centuries, the river has welcomed travelers and trade from up and down the Intracoastal Waterway, inviting them to drop anchor and stay awhile. Once you get a glimpse of the charming and vivacious region, you won’t want to leave, either. Visitors try to steal glances of the river from highways and bridges, but arguably, the best view of the Cape Fear River will be Marina Village in RiverLights. 

Reel in a prize-winning fish. Feel your engine and your imagination rev. Sail away into the sunset — or at least away from the daily grind. Skim the surface, or go deep.

The ride of your life awaits on the Cape Fear River, and your ticket is at the RiverLights community with model home opening planned for fall 2016.
