Cedar Point and Cape Carteret
Select another area
Resting on the western side of Bogue Sound and only a few minutes from Emerald Island are two cities - Cedar Point and Cape Carteret. Separated by Route 58, which becomes Emerald Drive, the two cities continue to grow together and contribute to the appeal of living waterfront in North Carolina.
Located in the western part of Carteret County, Cedar Point is across the East Channel from Swansboro, NC, and adjacent to Cape Carteret to the north. With spectacular views of Bogue Sound, the Intra-Coastal Waterway, and the White Oak River, Cedar Point is a beautiful waterfront community. Fishing, boating, and water sports are as much a part of Cedar Point as are its historical roots.
This tight-knit community has a bustling economy which includes commercial fishing operations, local farming operations, and the tourist industry, but the town has managed to grow while maintaining its small town charm. Since 1713, Cedar Point has made, well, a point of keeping a sense of community as a central part of its growth plans. Being only 2 square miles does not deter this town from having all the amenities that are available in larger towns, such as parks, campgrounds, several restaurants, and 3 hotels.
Also, only a couple square miles large, what Cape Carteret lacks in size, it more than makes up for in stature. Just north of its twin city Cedar Point, Cape Carteret is also adjacent to Peletier to the north and sits on the western shore of Bogue Sound - across which is Emerald Isle.
Incorporated in 1959 and with a recent population of just under 2,000 people, Cape Carteret's moderate temperature, friendly people, and access to wonderful natural bodies of water, like Crystal Coast beaches, make this city an ideal place in which to invest. The Star Hill Golf Club is only minutes away from any resident living in Cape Carteret, as is the Aquatics Center, Golfin Dolphin (mini-golf and go-karting), and the 'end-of-street' boat launch found at the end of Manatee St.
With a mild climate and beautiful beaches only a few minutes away, Cape Carteret and Cedar Point are attracting retirees and families from all over the country. Many love the affordable lifestyle and quiet atmosphere just minutes from all of the conveniences and attractions of a waterfront life. City shopping and large companies can be found just 25 miles away in either direction - south to Wilmington or north to Jacksonville, NC.
