There are so many distinct areas that it’s not easy to describe all the communities in the Greater Wilmington area. Of course, it’s not possible to list all of them, but we’ll mention a few that are continuing to develop in three basic areas: Brunswick County, which includes Southport and Leland; New Hanover County, which includes Wilmington, Carolina Beach, Kure Beach and Wrightsville Beach; and Pender County, just north of Wilmington.

We’ll begin with Brunswick County, which experienced a 43.5 percent population growth during the ’90s and was one of North Carolina’s fastest growing counties. Although that rate slowed down during the economic downturn, it is expanding again. Growth of Brunswick County was not always so.

Today, numerous, relatively new developments and neighborhoods exist in Brunswick County, primarily along North Carolina State Routes 133 and 211 from Southport, and along US Highway 17. A number are gated communities, sometimes called resorts, and quite a few have golf courses.


Pip & Scout Make a Splash!

Two loggerhead sea turtle hatchlings named Pip and Scout are making a splash at North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher (NCAFF). Pip and Scout are survivors found in nest excavations at Carolina Beach and Fort Fisher. Their names began with ideas from staff, then votes from students throughout North Carolina.
