Lovely Leland

With a population of about 15,000 and home to the gated community of Compass Pointe, Leland is a newly thriving North Carolina town, robust in energy, but retaining its small town personality. Just a short drive from several spectacular Brunswick County beaches and just across the Cape Fear River from Wilmington, the town is modernizing before its residents’ eyes — shopping centers, boutiques, restaurants, and world-class golf to go along with a colorful history and natural charm. Launch a kayak at Sturgeon Creek Park, Leland’s first water access; picnic at the eight-acre Leland Municipal Park; shop till you drop at the monthly Seaglass Salvage Market, or take in a concert or an art exhibit at the Leland Cultural Arts Building. Located in the heart of Southeastern North Carolina, Leland boasts a budding reputation in the region.
