Relocation Guide

Welcome to Wilmington.

If you’re lucky enough to be relocating to Wilmington, or even if you’re just starting to think about it, we’d love to say hi and give you some insights on why people love it here so much. So stop by Riverlights while you’re out and about exploring your future home city … you may even find your future home community.

Not just a charming location. A convenient one.

Riverlights just feels relaxed and away-from-it-all. Because we’re less than 5 miles south of Historic Downtown Wilmington … which means we’re less than 5 miles from cultural events, nightlife, a central business district and world-class dining. And within 15 minutes, you can find yourself on world-class beaches, too. Want to get even further away? No problem. The Wilmington International Airport can get you anywhere you want to go.

Where to Find Us

You're going to love it here.

It’s … well, Wilmington

There’s just something about this city. Maybe it’s the history. Maybe it’s the charm. Maybe it’s the Riverwalk or the foodie scene or the coastal setting. (Or most likely, it’s all of those things.)

Beaches in Wilmington, North Carolina

We’ve got beaches

Not just a beach. Three beaches, just 15 miles away. Whether you want to fish from a quiet pier or ride a ferris wheel and see fireworks, there’s a beach that’s happy to oblige.

Homes with Charm
