SOUTHPORT HISTORIC COASTAL & WINE TASTING TOUR

The finest example of a Victorian coastal town in North Carolina quietly waits at land’s end, where the rolling Cape Fear River meets the mighty Atlantic. The small-town quaintness still exists in this quiet, sleepy place where giant live oak trees line the winding streets, and rocking chairs beckon from front porches. Southport offers a refreshing step back in time and remains one of the few towns in the state that has successfully retained its late 19th century appearance.

Evidenced by the stately period riverfront residences, historic churches and coastal turn-of-the-century cottages, the tour includes the Franklin Square Gallery. Lunch is on your own at the Fishy Fishy Cafe where you can enjoy fresh, healthy, local foods, prepared in a variety of ways to accommodate a variety of palettes. After lunch, a short walk from the Cafe, you have time for some shopping!! The last stop of the day is the Silver Coast Winery in Southport.
