Overview of Wilmington

Along the coastal shores of North Carolina is Wilmington. Known as the Port City, Wilmington is situated between the Atlantic Ocean and the Cape Fear River. This makes visits to the beach easy and convenient and even more perfect for anyone who may be in the market for Wilmington apartments for rent.

EUE/Screen Gems Studios, a film and television production location, is also located in Wilmington and served as the set for popular television series, including One Tree Hill and Dawson's Creek. There's no need to visit the hectic city of Los Angeles when you can find the next big movie star just around the corner, or you could even land yourself a spot on a show as a character or extra!

Living in Wilmington

The city was incorporated in 1739 and is named after the Earl of Wilmington. Once the largest city in North Carolina, the city remains a major port and appears to have a magnetic pull on beach lovers from all over the United States. Wilmington apartments for rent won't leave you too far from fun in the sun at Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina's most accessible beach from I-40. Feeling the sand between your toes will make it your favorite hot spot, especially if you enjoy water activities like sailing, fishing or surfing. If you enjoy staying on land over water, then a drink in the sun or a game of beach volleyball is always an option.

More than 106,000 people call this charming Southern city home and many like to enjoy nights out on the town in one of the several neighborhoods that make up Wilmington. Bellville, Hampstead, Rocky Point and Wrightsville Beach are considered just some of the most popular neighborhoods in the city.

Wilmington apartments and cost of living

More than half of the residents living in Wilmington choose to rent, but that doesn't limit renting options.

You can also expect to pay between $3.57 and $3.79 for a gallon of gas, lower than in other areas of the country.
