“Where to Retire” magazine has named the Wilmington area a top retirement destination in its November/December issue. The article noted the three nearby beaches–Wrightsville, Carolina and Kure–as a particular draw, calling them “a tranquil escape from the city.”
“Full of history and genteel Southern charm, this riverfront city offers a lifestyle that is both sophisticated and laid-back,” said managing editor Annette Fuller. “Colorful azalea bushes and magnolia trees beautify the town, known to some as “Wilmywood” due to the presence of local film studios that have been reeling out movies and TV shows for 30 years….”
The issue of the magazine featuring Wilmington will be available on October 15.
