Historic Downtown Wilmington is an area designated by both local historic district boundaries and a National Register of Historic Places. It is considered to be the blocks between Castle Street on the south and the Isabel Holmes Bridge on the north, and 8th Street to the Cape Fear River.
Historic Downtown Wilmington flows into surrounding neighborhoods that have seen gentrification and significant property rehabilitation in the past decade, including the Castle Street Arts & Antiques District, Brooklyn Arts District, and Carolina Place. Other areas of Wilmington, like Midtown, Monkey Junction, Ogden, Landfall, and Forest Hills, are less than 20 minutes from downtown with the option of taking any number of routes that include Oleander Drive, Market Street, Wrightsville Avenue, Carolina Beach Road, and MLK Parkway.
Downtown Wilmington has a population of about 24,650, while the entire population ...

Located right across the Cape Fear River and just west of Historic Downtown Wilmington, Leland has the fastest increasing population in southeastern North Carolina. Leland has the feel of all these: a small town, a booming suburb, and a bustling metropolitan area.
Located in Brunswick County, the 2010 census population was 13,527, and annual statistics indicate a fast growth rate, with many new residents finding affordable real estate and easy access to both the beaches and either Wilmington North Carolina or Myrtle Beach South Carolina. Leland is actually part of the Myrtle Beach Metropolitan Statistical Area.
Leland covers 19.9 square miles, the majority of which is land. One of the most rapidly growing towns in southeastern Coastal North Carolina, Leland includes non-contiguous parcels that are forested land and parks. Leland wraps around the tiny town of Belville on its north, west, and south sides ...

Ocean Isle Beach sits along the Intracoastal Waterway and the ocean, so its beaches, seasonal rentals, and tourist attractions are a big draw. With only 4.5 square miles, about 3/4 of that is land, which includes a barrier island that runs from Tubbs Inlet to Shallotte Inlet, and a small section of mainland that connected to the island by a bridge that reaches across the marsh.
Ocean Isle Beach is a manmade barrier island created in the mid 1930s, with the construction of the Intracoastal Waterway. The island was incorporated in 1959, and has a permanent population of about 600 - but the number of residents swells to mor ...
