Of course, it goes without saying that the beach is just as beautiful here as it is along each end of Topsail!

Finding most everything you need is not a problem in this little village that is big on livability. Within a 1 to 5 mile radius from the center of town, you'll find a grocery store, library, schools, public transit, fitness studio, coffee shops, a park, plenty of restaurants (several oceanfront), fish markets, antique shops, fresh produce, apparel shops and two noteworthy bakeries!

Although it is much smaller than the beach communities that surround it, there are still numerous property options in Surf City. Let us know if you're considering new construction, condo living or a classic Carolina cottage and we will be pleased to help you in your search!
