    Whether it's your first visit to the Southport area or a frequent traveler to these parts, you owe it to yourself to learn more about this quaint fishing village, small town ambiance/friendliness, and all Southport has to offer. The Museum is a good starting point. And, while still on foot be sure to enjoy the view of the bay, a walk on the fishing pier and some other great sights and the food of the lower Cape Fear River. We've been coming to Southport since October, 1995.
