Topsail Realty has recently changed hands and they have made quite a few significant changes! Super friendly staff, very clean homes, and keyless entry on their properties! Very easy, very convenient. I would recommend without hesitation!

The beach is the true draw here. Not much to do for families besides the beach and some restaurants. A great vacation aimed at relaxation.

We have been coming here for 15 years. Our kids have wonderful memories of vacationing on the beach every summer and Easters! Now we still come with our grown children and their spouses who now love it as much as we do!!

I drive, I didnt fly. But if you fly, you would want to go into Wilmington then you can rent a car and drive. You could also go into OAJ, which is Onslow County, (Jacksonville/New River) where a lot of the military bases are.
