Bring Your Pup! Dog Friendly Living in Southeastern Coastal North Carolina

Wilmington and the beaches are decidedly dog-friendly, with great walking trails, outdoor dining at restaurants that welcome four-legged friends, and a slew of dog parks and pup-oriented recreational activities.

In a community that embraces both your family and your pets, there are plenty of options when deciding what do for the day or evening - options that include your dog, too!


Dog-Friendly Breweries
Starting in September 2019, there is a new law in North Carolina that will allow dogs (and cats) inside breweries, as long as the brewery doesn't prepare food on the premises.

Here are some of our favorite spots to grab a beer and chill with our four-legged buddies:

Front Street Brewery
Waterline Brewery
Waterman's Brewing Company
Goat & Compass
Good Hops Brewing
Edward Teach Brewing

Wrightsville Brewing
Flytrap Brewing
Burnt Mill Tavern




Dog-Friendly Dining

"Absorbtion rate" is something that we talk about internally on the KBT Realty team. At what pace are homes that are put on the market in various price categories selling, and what is a reasonable expectation a seller can have for how long it may take to get their house sold? 

If we look at the market by price point, Kirk suggests, up to about $350,000, in New Hanover county, assuming a house is in a decent location and in decent condition without too much deferred maintenance, there is a three month supply of inventory. On the spectrum of buyers-market, sellers-market, a h ...
