Spend the day paddle boarding or board gaming.

At Riverlights, the possibilities of what to do are limited only by the number of hours in the day. Because this is a home for trail walkers, porch rockers, and everything in between. Spend your day appreciating the natural splendor of the Cape Fear River. Enjoying the convenience of walkable shops and restaurants. Taking a walk along miles of nature trails. Meeting up with neighbors for an oyster roast. Lounging poolside. And so, so much more. How you spend your day is up to you. And if you run out of time to do it all? Well, there’s always tomorrow.
