When moving from the hustle and bustle of a big city, you may want to lose some of the negatives like traffic, high taxes and harsh weather, but you don’t want to give up all the things you loved like the culture, shopping, dining, theaters and museums.  That’s why Wilmington, NC is attracting so many folks from metropolitan northeast cities.  Wilmington has all the aspects of a big city, but with the charm of a small town.

Wilmington, NC is perfectly nestled on the southeast coast between Wrightsville Beach and the Cape Fear River giving you the best of it all.  Near the beach you will find quaint small town shops, markets and the freshest seafood around.  Head downtown to the historic district and along the Riverwalk you will find eclectic boutiques, amazing bistros, wine bars, award-winning restaurants, historic theaters and fantastic museums.

Also in Wilmington, you will find two attractive college campuses drawing in those who seek to learn; and should desire room to roam, Wilmington has a bevy of parks so you can stroll past lakes or amphitheaters just like you would in a big city.

So if you’re considering a move from a larger, metro area, put Brunswick Forest and Wilmington, NC on your list!
