Charming, With A Twist

When you stroll through Marina Village, you’ll instantly feel our coastal town charm. Our lively town square radiates our homegrown culture mixed with local shops, eateries, and entertainment. It’s where we gather with friends and neighbors, venture through boutique shops and art galleries, and sip local wines and craft beers while overlooking the sunset. It’s where we break a sweat with biking and golf, and then get freshly made pizzas to guiltlessly enjoy in the park. And the best part? Everyone's invited.

The Coast with the Most

At Riverlights, we do water differently. With easy access to the Cape Fear River, boat-friendly intercoastal waterways, a family-friendly pool, and a 38-acre lake, you can paddleboard, canoe, sail, kayak, or cast a line – all the time. Land-dwellers will enjoy strolling (or rolling) along the three-mile loop around the lake and scenic nature trails that weave Riverlights together.
