Wilmington fast paced? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Wilmington still has signs on businesses that say "We now accept credit cards!" LOL

Traffic infrastructure makes it appear busy, but it really that busy. Then again, if you are a small town girl, it might seem loud and busy and fast paced.

We visited Wilmington in 2001 - looking for a setting like Dawson's Creek (actually watched them film part of an episode while we were there). We were very disappointed in Wilmington. It was not at all like what we expected. The big trucks going right through downtown... yuck.

We ventured down to Southport and we found it to be much more like the setting of Dawson's Creek, although I visited there last month and it seems to be a bit more rundown now.

My family use to vacation in Oak Island all the time and we'd drive into Southport for shopping and eating. Oak Island is nice and peaceful also

Is Southport a nice place to spend the day at?

Hey Matt Backwards-

With your grammer..... Your IQ is about the size of a pin-head.

Oh and you meant to say that your credit card was declined.

Really? Is that really necessary? I feel no need to defend myself from such a petty attack. You are narrow minded to attack someone expressing their opinion when you do not even know them...

So Brooklyn, I take it you live in the hustling bustling town of Wilmington, NC?

By the way, the word you were looking for is spelled "grammar". Who is lacking IQ?

Although I am from the Charlotte area, so compared to that, it's much less populated and hectic. But not slow paced, small town, uncrowded etc. And not peaceful IMO- not a rat race either though.
