New Year, New Home: Living in Wrightsville Beach

Moving to the beach sounds like everyone’s dream – we would know!

As one of the most knowledgeable real estate branches here in the Wrightsville Beach area, the Michelle Clark Team sees every day just how great it is to live here on the North Carolina coast.

But even if relocating closer to the water is a goal for you and your family, the idea of arriving in a brand new place with no one you know can be a little daunting. Our agents are well-versed in the comings and goings of this region, so we can help ease some of those nerves by giving you a taste of what it’s like to live at the beach!

Check out the neighborhood

First things first: what’s the lay of the land? When you move somewhere new, it’s important to know not just what your literal neighborhood is like, but also what you can expect from the surrounding area. Wrightsville Beach is your quintessential, down-to-earth coastal town with locally owned restaurants that specialize in southern cuisine and seafood, and eclectic shops. Outdoor enthusiasts are welcome in this prime location for surfing and other watersports, since it’s conveniently placed on one of the state’s most accessible beaches, with clear access to the Atlantic and the Intracoastal Waterway.

What’s happening?

Though it doesn’t have downtown Wilmington’s breweries, restaurants, and music venues, Wrightsville Beach does host a number of annual events and social happenings throughout the seasons to keep residents of all ages entertained. Outdoor events like the Wrightsville Beach Marathon, holiday get-togethers at Lumina Station’s many shops and restaurants, and regular vacation-worthy days at the beach in the spring and summertime make this town one of our favorites on the coast! Once you make your way here, we recommend tuning into the many community calendars and keeping an eye out for upcoming events so you can get to know your new home as soon as possible.

Ways to get involved

After you and your family get settled into your new house, it’s time to involve yourselves with your neighbors in the activities and fun you’ve always enjoyed in previous homes. This beach town is known for its inclusive, welcoming vibe, which comes in handy if you’re just joining the community and want to find some niches that will make you feel more at home. There are plenty of community organizations that are dedicated to not just the health and progress of the town, but also in keeping the beaches clean and hospitable for humans and wildlife alike! From the Wrightsville Beach Foundation to the Adopt-A-Beach Access program, there’s a little something for everyone.

Still not sure where to start looking for community involvement opportunities? Each of the members of the Michelle Clark Team have a passion project or particular interest in the area, and welcome any questions about what they love to do in their spare time to help enrich their neighborhoods!
