The Villages at Brunswick Forest located just inside the entrance of the Coastal South’s fastest growing master-planned community in Wilmington North Carolina has welcomed a new line up of businesses.

These businesses join many others, including medical and health facilities, as the 500,000 square feet town center continues to grow. Here, running errands isn’t a chore for Brunswick Forest residents – it’s an opportunity for an enjoyable bike ride or walk to The Villages and back. For Baby Boomers who desire an active, healthy, and more ecologically sound lifestyle, the ability to walk or pedal to shopping areas instead of driving is very appealing and commonly requested. Doctor visits and routine medical care are readily available at New Hanover Regional Medical Center’s 40,000 square foot facility in The Villages. Pick up a prescription, drop by the bank, stop to chat with neighbors, meet a friend for lunch, pop into the grocery store for tomatoes, and never even leave your community when you live in one of the best walking neighborhoods in North Carolina. The Villages town center is accessible via bike trails and walking paths from virtually all of Brunswick Forest homes.
