No use or need for "night life" (usually that brings troubles of its own); but definitely yeah—not much shopping except Wal-Mart and (expensive) mom-and-pop/tourist shops, restaurants, etc. It's basically Peyton Place for wealthy individuals and retirees who earned their money elsewhere and can afford to live here.(*30+ yr. resident*)

I love Southport. The history behind this town is very interesting. If you ever get a chance to take a walking tour go ahead and do it. It's worth every dime! Also visit The Trolly Stop and eat one of their famous hot dogs.....makes my mouth water just thinking about it!

Living in Dirty Myrtle Beach now and hate it,very high crime rate and so many homeless crack addicts. Have been in Oak Island and Southport several times. Seriously thinking of moving there. How is the crime in the area? Don't care about nightlife or shopping. Retired and just wanna kick back and enjoy life

Screw you. You all raped up the land here with all the good ol' boy contractors ripping out all trees and native vegetation, to put up ticky tack look alike shacks all over the place. Your government is the dictionary definition of dysfunctional. And who runs the government here? That's right, you good ol' boys. The only ones complaining are those too stupid to realize that they are part of the problem.
