Last Monday I took a day off work and went on a day trip with my sister to Southport, NC. Southport is a cute little historic coastal town in NC, a lot of movies have been filmed there including Weekend at Bernie’s, I Know What You Did Last Summer, and Safe Haven.
First stop the Christmas and Candy store located in an old house, I don’t care about the Christmas crap but I love looking at the inside of the house.
All of the historic houses have been restored each with a plaque detailing the year built and the owner’s names or house name.
We walked the block but failed to find anything Safe Haven related, we did find out how far it was to certain locations throughout the US though.
Part of the historic Southport waterfront including the Fishy Fishy Café which was a filming location for Safe Haven.
From South port you can see the Oak Island Lighthouse as well as Old Baldy.
We shopped the downtown stores, checked out the old cemetery which included graves from Civil War soldiers, and walked by the old jail which unfortunately was open for touring that day.
“May Peace Prevail On Earth” was writing in a different language on each side of this pole.
The oldest Standing House in Southport, built in 1800 this house has stood a LOT of storms.
We ate lunch at a Thai restaurant that my sister had heard some great reviews about, I was unimpressed and didn’t take a single picture of our less than stellar lunches. We had a lot of fun and avoided the storms that day, if you’re ever in the area I highly recommend a visit to Southport.
Now that my sister’s gone I’m looking for volunteers to go on day trips with me to local places, who’s coming?
