Southport is a Must Visit for Summer Travel

If you’re a Nicholas Sparks fan, you’re probably very familiar with Southport! The movie Safe Haven with Julianne Hough and Josh Duhamel shot here! That’s one of the reasons I initially wanted to visit, but I go back because the town is adorable. Southport is also the perfect coastal escape if you’re not a lay out on the beach all day kind of person.

Where to Stay

I haven’t personsally stayed in Southport, but there are a few hotels in town. They also have some pretty

adorable looking Inns that catch my eye every time I visit. I’ll list them below for you!

  • Captain Newton’s Inn

  • Robert Ruark Inn

  • LaPolena Bed & Breakfast

Where to Eat

  • Fishy Fish Cafe

  • Provision Company

  • Flava’s Ice Cream (holy cow!! Not only is the ice cream delicious, but you get A LOT for a decent price).

Things to Do

  • Enjoy the scenery at Waterfront Park

  • Take a Safe Haven Movie Tour (separate guide on this coming soon)!

  • Visit The Christmas House

  • Swap a book at the free library at Keziah Park

  • Do a wine tasting at Silver Coast Winery

  • Grab some snacks from Southport Market

  • Shop til you drop in downtown Southport

  • Take in the views from the River Walk
