Located on the east coast of North Carolina, Wrightsville Beach is a happening beach town with a little more than 2,500 residents. The town dates back to the early 1700s but it wasn’t until 1853 that the Carolina Yacht Club was established as the first permanent building constructed on the island. As part of New Hanover County, Wrightsville Beach has become a popular tourist destination during the summer months for visitors from around the world.
Those who live on the beach consist of both full-time residents as well as short time vacationers. Both, however, enjoy all of the festivities the town puts on year-round. Some of the biggest events that bring attraction to Wrightsville include the Azalea Festival which is held in the early weeks of April and celebrates the azaleas once a year spectacular bloom with parades, concerts, and fairs and food. Another local favorite is the Holiday Flotilla, in which the residents deck their boats in lights and decorations and parade them around the Intracoastal Waterway on the Saturday following Thanksgiving. Live concerts, 5-Ks and surf contests fill the town for the rest of the year’s festivities. Nestled up next to the town of Wilmington, Wrightsville Beach also has a vibrant main street with restaurants, bars, and coffee shops. Not too far from Wrightsville’s main drag, you can find yourself on the Intracoastal Waterway which separates the island from Wilmington.
The Intracoastal is lined with delicious restaurants open all year such as The Bridge Tender, Bluewater Grill, Fish House Grill, and Dockside, and all of which you can boat right up to. When locals are out enjoying the sunshine and coastal breezes of the beach, they can easily catch a few waves which are perfect for surfing, boating, or fishing. If that’s not enough, head on over to Wrightsville SUP or Cape Fear Paddleboarding for more water-filled activities. Whether it be a sunny summer afternoon or a crisp fall day, there is never a dull day on the “Loop,” which is roughly a 2.5-mile walking path that.
Although there are no education choices located on the beach, there are more than 10 schooling options within a 15-minute radius of the island. The University of North Carolina at Wilmington draws more than 15,000 students a year to the area and the beach is a frequent relaxation place for all those who choose to visit the campus. With long summers and short winters, Wrightsville Beach is a wonderful place to live, work, or play.
