Though Southport is a fairly small town, with fishing village charm, you might find it oddly familiar. It’s the star of a number of American films and TV series, including Dawson’s Creek, Matlock and I Know What You Did Last Summer. The part of town shown is Old Southport, which is where you’ll find the historic buildings and homes - as well as some of the best places to stay in Southport - but the rest of the town is similar to other small North Carolina towns. Southport is on the mouth of the Cape Fear River, and you’ll also find some of the best places to stay in Southport overlooking the river and the ocean here.
As well as enjoying the peace and being on and off the water, visitors to Southport might like to see the beautiful Franklin Square Art Gallery, a nicely displayed collection of work by local artists, and the Southport Maritime Museum.
A charming, idyllic inn, located just steps from the beach. Hiking, biking, rowing, swimming, fishing, bowling - the activities are endless. Rooms decorated in pastel shades have a nautical vibe, private terraces, and beautiful ocean views. Perfect for both an active and relaxing sea-side vacation.
