Southport, Happiest Seaside Town!

Coastal Living Magazine has named Southport, NC as one of the top 10 finalist for their contest of ‘America’s Happiest Seaside Town.’ I can’t think of a more accurate statement to describe this coastal town.

I moved to Southport, NC nine years ago from the Washington DC area. To say it was a culture shock is an understatement! I came from a large city that was non-stop hustle and bustle. I was now living in a small Southern town that moved along on Island time. It took a little while for me to acclimate to this new style of living, but it was the best decision I have ever made!

Walking down the tree-lined streets feels like I’m stepping onto the set of a movie. That may be because Southport has been the backdrop to multiple movies and shows. Safe Haven, I Know What You Did Last Summer and A Walk to Remember are just a few of the movies filmed here.

The picturesque town is just the beginning of the allure of this little fishing village. The people who live here are just as charming as the place they call home. When I first moved here I couldn’t understand why strangers would just walk up to me and start chatting. Coming from the city, I thought they wanted something from me or they had an ulterior motive. As I relaxed, and my outer shell softened, I realized they were just being nice. Wow, these people actually took the time to get to know their neighbors! They were living out the old saying, “stop and smell the roses”. What a novel concept! Imagine actually caring about the strangers in your community. You don’t know them personally, you don’t play golf with them every Thursday. Still, these strangers are interested in how you day has been.

Be sure to vote for our little piece of happiness! Voting ends on March 31.

If you want to experience living in this quaint seaside town which exemplifies Americana plan your trip today and give me a call to help you find a home that lets your happy shine!

Take it from this “Northern” girl, you don’t have to be born in the South to be a Southerner at heart!
