Eastwood Road/University Area

With the University of North Carolina-Wilmington at its center, the Eastwood Road/University sector attracts college students and professors, along with those looking to live within a short distance of Wrightsville Beach.

Key Features

Walkability/Close to the Action: Many neighborhoods in this area offer access to the Gary Shell Cross-City Trail, a city project focused on making Wilmington more walkable and bikeable.

Wrightsville Beach: Wrightsville Beach is a laidback beach town nestled between salt marshes and barrier islands. It is the home of cool surf shops, coffee shops, delicious seafood, and miles of white sandy beach.

Cross-City Trail

Great place to go for a walk, run, or bike ride. The Cross-City Trail is one of the largest and best multi use trails in the area! You can always catch a UNCW sporting event. Wilmington City Golf course has been completely remodeled and is a lot of fun to play as well.
