Southport

Steeped in history and picturesque beauty, Southport has a charm that has not only attracted visitor’s, but the eye of the movie industry as well. Films such as "Nights in Rodanthe", "A Walk to Remember" and "The Secret Lives of Bees" all feature scenes shot in Southport. Fronting the Cape Fear River and the notorious Frying Pan Shoals, Southport has long been a port of haven for sea captains as far back as the 1700’s. Stroll the docks and have a crab-cake sandwich and steamed shrimp at one of several restaurants featuring outdoor dining on the waterfront. Take a piece of culture or history home from a gallery or antiques shop, or try golfing, sailing or skydiving in the area. Whether you simply soak in the Old-South atmosphere or visit the sites, Southport is a vacation to discover the old and enjoy it anew.
