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.


Indoor Air Quality

In a time when people are finding themselves spending most of their days working and learning from home, indoor air quality has never been more important. Studies done by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency have shown that the air inside our homes can be as much as five times more polluted than the air we breathe outside. Since poor air quality greatly impacts our overall health and well being, improving our home’s air quality is essential.
