Senior Living in Wilmington, North Carolina
An average day in a senior living community can look different for everyone. While some might enjoy an afternoon at the full-service spa, others are out and about in the city. No matter how you want to spend your day, living in a neighborhood that meets your needs is essential.
In Wilmington, NC, plenty of “hidden gems” are just waiting to be discovered by you (and whoever you enjoy life with)! Here are seven reasons that senior living in this city is superior:
Engage in a Unique Community
North Carolina boasts several cities worth visiting, but you won’t find any place as perfect for your retirement as Wilmington. This city’s strength is variety—there’s something for everyone (and we mean everyone). When you venture beyond The Davis Community, you’ll see just how unique the area is.
Visit the Beautiful Beaches
You’ll probably run into a beautiful beach if you drive long enough. From Wrightsville Beach to Kure Beach, Masonboro Island, and Topsail Island, you can spend the day with a good book every weekend in the sand. Remember that some of these beaches are only accessible by boat, so plan on catching an island shuttle to get there.

Did you know you can reach multiple cities from Wilmington in under two hours? Known as the perfect place to stay for day-trippers, you can plan an excursion to Raleigh, Durham, or Fayetteville from Wilmington.
Stay Busy Year-Round with Mild Winters
No one wants to get caught up in the cold! At least not in retirement. Wilmington offers mild winters, so the activities or events at The Davis Community don’t have to stop when temperatures drop. The year-long good weather means that you can make the most of every day. But of course, we won’t blame you if you stay home—our cottages and apartments are cozy, comfortable, and the perfect place to spend your afternoon.

Some notable titles with Wilmington cameos include Dawson’s Creek, One Tree Hill, A Walk to Remember, Iron Man 3, Enchanted, We’re the Millers, and The Longest Ride.
