River Lights

Nestled along the scenic Cape Fear River, River Lights is one of the premier waterfront communities in Wilmington, North Carolina. This planned community is conveniently located just five miles south of historic downtown Wilmington and within 10 miles of 3 of the most beautiful beaches in North Carolina…Wrightsville Beach, Carolina Beach and Kure Beach.   


You can begin your mornings with a coffee at the Marina Village local café; jogging or riding your bike along the many trails throughout the community.

And for those who love the water, River Lights is located adjacent to the Cape Fear River which provides some of the best boating and fishing you’ll ever experiences.


 Imagine traveling up and the down the river for lunch to downtown Wilmington or to the nearby fishing town of Southport NC. If you rather stay close to home, there are several walkable shops and restaurants, and a wellness centered.


Take a family walk along miles of nature trails, meet up with neighbors for an oyster roast at Ember Park, enjoy community chatter at cooking class, or find peace as you paddleboard on the 38-acre Lake. Whether lounging poolside or breaking a sweat as the day breaks.

 The Marina Village, equivalent to a town center, is the main hub for gathering with friends, shopping in the boutiques or cozening up to the fire-pit, or taking a long walk down to the river boardwalk. With unbeatable views of the Cape Fear River, frequent live-music events, and plenty of room to lounge under live oak trees, this area of the community offers an escape just steps away from your home. Marina Village brings the best of both city and country to River Lights putting vibrant energy and convenient proximity to stores in a community that is tucked back on the river with a distinct neighborly feel.

Beyond well-designed and versatile home options, unique amenities, and ideal proximity to historic downtown Wilmington, River Lights seamlessly connects outdoor living with the benefits and pleasures of a close-knit community.
