I love Rocky Point. It is safe, the people are wonderful and it is a beautiful area. I have made great friends since moving here and I love how it is so close to Wilmington but far enough away to be safe, quiet and peaceful

Rocky Point is an amazing place to live if you love the country. It is a quiet and relaxed town. There are plenty of places to shop for everything you need and quaint places to eat at. Everywhere you are surrounded by forests and wildlife. I've never been happier then since I've moved here.
Nothing to do, no one around. Slowly growing and expanding. Secluded neighborhoods and very separated.
