Pender County

Growth spills over from the greater Wilmington North Carolina area into neighboring Pender County with its farmlands and historic county seat of Burgaw. Check out the town's village green with the Georgian/Colonial revival courthouse still in tact. Nearby, the battle-site of Moores Creek features annual reenactments of the pivotal 1776 Revolutionary War conflict.

As you move closer to the coast, a distinct change takes place in Pender Country. This is beach country with the heritage of pirates and strong ties to the sea. The town that anchors this end of the county is Hampstead just 20 minutes from downtown Wilmington NC and about 30 minutes from Jacksonville NC. Known as the Seafood Capital of NC, this coastal town is famous for its annual Spot festival and weekly farmers' markets at the historic Poplar Grove Plantation. While there, you can explore the maze-like walking trails or visit some of the farm animals grazing in the pastures.

Hampstead is the fastest growing community in Pender County with its proximity to Wilmington NC and access to the beautiful beaches of South Topsail island. Just cross the bridge from the mainland you'll find yourself in Surf City, a low-key family community and home to Topsail's only stop light. This is the business center of the island with shopping, dining, boat ramps and an ocean-front pier. Before you leave Hampstead be sure to stop in one of the local fish markets for some of the freshest seafood in area.
