I then started to research the town and area and it seems to be very nice and is very close to the beach and right on the intercoastal waterway. Great place for my sailboat. But my girlfriend wants a house. Where do you suggest we look?
There are houses in Southport. Its a small town, gets pretty quiet in the winter, but is a great place to live, imo. Finding a job will be an issue, if you're looking to work. Wilmington has houses too.

Now if New Bern is on the Danube and Jackson on the Seine, how do you paddle a kayak to Asheville?
I, too have, looked at Southport as a retirement area. I've lived on the rural Olympic Peninsula in Washington State for many years and like small saltwater towns. We have visited Beaufort and liked it a lot. We plan to rent before buying and there are more available rentals in Beaufort than Southport. We plan to check Swansboro. From my research it appears to be similar to Southport with Moorehead City and Jacksonville-on-the-New River being the two nearest large cities. Do Southport and Swansboro match up? Southport seems more "Artsy" and Southport more laid back. I guess we'll have to see for ourselves this summer. Still, I'd welcome any comments on the subject.
