We already know that our state is drawing people by the droves for many reasons--a few being our incredible coastlines, proximity to the mountains and super reasonable taxes.

We’re not only home to the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, but we’re also situated between the Cape Fear River and Intracoastal Waterways with easy access to all things H2O. Wilmington’s popularity isn’t likely to fade away anytime soon with our stunning beaches, historic downtown, and laid-back southern living vibe.
