    We love living in the Bluffs on the Cape Fear because we can continue to live an active lifestyle. New pickleball courts, boat ramp and boat slips are just a few of new additions. There are many resident groups to join: golf, pickleball, book club, Bunco, woodworking, travel adventures, just to name a few. Food Truck Fridays at the Clubhouse by the lake have been a big hit as well. One of the best perks is the Beach Club on Oak Island! It's a perfect place to drop your stuff and walk across the road to the beach. 20 minutes from Wilmington, The Bluffs is easily accessible to Routes 140, 74/76.
