Currently, Shallotte is the center of commerce for the Brunswick County region. Centrally located about halfway between Wilmington and Myrtle Beach it is convenient for shopping, food and information.
Despite its steady growth, Shallotte has so far managed to preserve its rural, small-town, coastal character. The surrounding countryside presents an array to terrain from rolling woodlands to tidal marshes. Along the Shallotte River, the osprey and egret still thrive.
Shallotte serves as the gateway to a number of South Brunswick beaches, namely Holden, Ocean Isle, and Sunset Beach. The town is also minutes away from Calabash.
Golf courses abound in this area from Brunswick County’s original course, Brierwood Golf Course to a recent Arnold Palmer design, River’s Edge Golf Course.
For outdoors enthusiasts, all manner of water sports are available. Quail, wild turkey, deer, ducks and other native and migratory species afford challenging sport. For anglers, opportunities make both fresh and saltwater fish seem almost limitless. Indoor activities include a 10 screen multiplex theater, roller-skating and bowling.
Despite Shallotte’s natural wealth, the rate of growth in the community, the attraction of lower-than-average taxes and reasonable prices indicates Shallotte is a very favorable investment for those buying real estate. Whether an older well cared for home or a brand new modern home in one of the several new developments, houses of varying sizes, locations and price ranges are available in Shallotte and the surrounding areas.
