Surf City is a delightful beach town situated on Topsail Beach and just south of Holly Ridge, North Carolina. With a population of just over 2,300, the town's motto is, “Big enough to be competitive, small enough to be happy!”
And there's plenty, indeed, for Surf City residents to be happy about. Home values have gone up more than 7.5% within the last year and are expected to continue to increase. And while the median home price is slightly higher than surrounding areas at $358,000, there are plenty of housing options that make it possible for new families and individuals to join the community and experience everything Surf City has to offer.
Area students are served by Surf City Elementary School, Surf City Middle School and Surf City K-8 School. Not too far away also lie a handful of Holly Ridge schools which are open for both public and private education.
Surf City hosts a number of annual events, including the Dolphin Dip, Reel Housewives Bike Ride, Easter Egg Roll, Dolphin Dash 5K, Bark At The Soundside Park, Independence Day Celebration and the Tree Lighting Ceremony. There are also plenty of local parks to explore (Soundside Park, Kenneth D. Batts Family Park and the Nelva R. Albury Recreation Area, to name a few) each of which offers a variety of playgrounds, boat launches, fishing piers, walking trails and beach views.
Whether you plan to stay in Surf City part-time or full-time, water sports are a must during the summer months. As the temperature can get in the high 80s and 90s for most of the summer days, it becomes a perfect place to live while on the beach.
Roughly the center-point between Emerald Isle and Wilmington, North Carolina, Surf City continues to experience consistent growth while holding on to its small-town beach feel.
