Southport Real Estate
Southport, NC, is a quaint fishing village where streets lined with live oaks invite you to slow down, to stroll, to enjoy the scenery and the serenity. Scattered throughout the town are beautifully preserved historic homes including the one where author Robert Ruark spent much of his youth with his grandfather, which inspired his series, namely “The Old Man and the Boy.”
Southport is known as the Fourth of July Capital of North Carolina. The Fourth of July Festival, held here yearly and lasting several days, attracts many thousands of people from all over the United States. The parade, crafts fair, fireman’s activities, children’s activities, entertainment, veteran’s recognition and the naturalization ceremony, topped off with fantastic fireworks, celebrates Independence Day the old-fashioned way.
