1) Brooklyn Arts District

Brooklyn Arts

If you're an artistic or creative type, The Brooklyn Arts district community is unparalleled. The area is a thriving creative center for local businesses, largely because of Acme Art Studios.

The business was created 27 years ago with the dream of being a central supportive hub for local artists. Based on the current culture of the area - that goal was clearly achieved!


2) Sunset Park

Sunset Park

How would you like to wake up to gorgeous views of The Cape Fear River or Greenfield Lake? Well, when you move to Sunset Park, you can! Not to mention, this incredibly affordable neighborhood has been beautifully renovated over the last 5-10 years.


3) RiverLights


Imagine never having to leave your neighborhood if you didn't want to. Well, if you move to RiverLights - that dream can become your reality!

That's because of Marina Village, which is RiverLights' community square. It offers enough shops, restaurants, & entertainment options to keep you & your family busy for years.


4) Monkey Junction

Monkey Junction

If there's any location around Wilmington that's really "grown up" in the past few years - it's Monkey Junction.

The area, which only used to have a few gas stations & a Piggly Wiggly, now offers tons of entertainment options. Additionally, this suburban hub has extremely affordable housing options.


5) The Cargo District

Cargo District

And finally, we'd be remiss if we didn't mention Wilmington's very own Cargo District. Imagine if you never had to drive to the office again. Well, if you buy in the Cargo District, that's completely possible. But despite what you may be thinking, I'm not talking about simply working from home.

Instead, I'm talking about two completely separate buildings that're stacked on top of (or placed beside) one another. How is this possible? Well, it's because all the spaces in the Cargo District are made from shipping containers. Not only is this a cool trend - it's incredibly good for the environment!
