Waterford of the Carolinas, 2019 Winner of the Community of Excellence Award, is a thoughtfully planned collection of gated neighborhoods surrounding the beauty of nature.  Residents can travel from neighborhood to neighborhood by foot or bike along pathways and bridges.  Kayakers and canoers can also travel throughout the community on a series of waterways and canals.  Just outside the waterfall gates, residents have easy access to fine and casual dining, grocery stores, banks, medical offices, professional services, and personal services.

Waterford of the Carolinas has helped usher in the expansive growth of North Brunswick County.  Leland, NC, once a highway exit on a traveler’s route to and from Myrtle Beach, has emerged as a lively community filled with a wealth of activities.  This bustling town has lots to offer adventure and nature seekers.  Outdoor, Indoor, Shopping, Dining, and Entertainment can all be found on Leland’s Events website.
