Welcome to your own 4.7 mile stretch of paradise. Wrightsville Beach has been a popular tourist destination for over 100 years now and was once only connected by a trolley system to Wilmington - 12 miles away. Hence, the island's favorite hotdog stand in the middle of the island- Trolley Stop. Wrightsville Beach is now accessible by drawbridge but many locals still like to believe we are still living on our own island getaway. Miles of pristine beaches and the cool Atlantic Ocean provide hours of quality family time during the day. Kayaking, boating, snorkeling, fishing and swimming are all at your finger tips. Wrightsville Beach Park is also home to several playing fields to enjoy: baseball, softball, soccer, football, volleyball, tennis, catch with Fido or get a push on the playground swing. With various restaurants & local grocers serving up seafood, pastas, steaks and various other gourmet cuisines with a southern coastal flare- you are sure not to go hungry. Spend warm summer nights on the porch with your family, counting stars on a blanket on the beach, or cocktails at the local dives on Lumina Ave. With virtually zero crime rates, islanders respect each other and live a vacation style lifestyle. Wrightsville Beach is the perfect place to raise and relax with your family.
