What draws families and individuals from around the country to Brunswick County? Our REALTORS® draw on their experiences helping satisfied home buyers to offer five main reasons for Brunswick County's popularity.

  1. Scenic Location
    Sunshine, fresh air and spectacular scenery make coastal areas like Brunswick County the most sought-after places to live. Studies show living near the ocean provides significant benefits for mental and physical health. In addition, Brunswick County's proximity to cities such as Wilmington and Myrtle Beach creates the best of both worlds.
     
  2. Pleasant Climate
    Sperling's Best Places gives Brunswick County a score of 76 out of 100 on their Comfort Index, well above the national average of 54. The county also beats the rest of the country with 215 sunny days per year compared to 205, and with an annual average of fewer than two inches, snow is virtually non-existent.

  3. Outdoor Activities
    Even lifelong couch potatoes find it easy to maintain an active lifestyle in Brunswick County. As home to more than 30 championship courses, the county has earned the nickname of North Carolina's "golf coast." Water makes up 20 percent of Brunswick County's square mileage, resulting in numerous opportunities for swimming, water skiing, kayaking, and other aquatic sports.  

  4. Historic Tradition
    Brunswick County's rich heritage dates back to its origin in 1764. Major points of interest for residents and tourists include Old Baldy, the oldest standing lighthouse in North Carolina, and the USS North Carolina, a majestic battleship that played an important role in World War II. History buffs enjoy touring Fort Anderson and other local Civil War forts. 

  5. Natural Wonders
    While modern life has become increasingly dependent on technology, Brunswick County affords residents many chances to interact with nature on a regular basis. Thanks to a variety of ecosystems in the area, there are plentiful opportunities for bird watching and wildlife spotting. The unique Holden Beach Turtle Watch Program is a team of volunteers devoted to protecting the sea turtle population and educating people of all ages about the endangered species.
