The Area


river view of boat launchRiverSea Plantation is centrally located in Brunswick County, about midway between Wilmington, NC, and Myrtle Beach, SC. The region is treasured for its natural beauty that includes ocean beaches, scenic winding rivers, vast marshes and sprawling countryside.

About 15 miles from RiverSea, you’ll find the charming seaside town of Southport, NC. Southport is the definition of quaint, with antique shops, restaurants and historic homes lining its streets, and all manner of fishing boats along its shore. It’s also home to the legendary North Carolina 4th of July Festival, a patriotic celebration of epic proportions.

Just outside Southport, Brunswick County beach towns stretch for miles east to west. South-facing beaches are rare along the East Coast, and they provide incredible opportunities for dramatic sunrises and sunsets.

A short drive up Highway 17 lands you in the port city of Wilmington. A bit larger than Southport, but just as charming, Wilmington offers nearly unlimited shopping, dining and cultural options. Head south instead of north along 17 and you will find Myrtle Beach, a mecca for golf, shopping, nightlife and family fun.
