The Perfect Trip To Leland NC Starts Here!
Perfectly situated between all the “big city” amenities and attractions of Wilmington and its historic waterfront and the beaches of Brunswick County, Leland offers unlimited opportunities for adventure and “getaway” experiences. Launch a canoe and explore winding creeks draped in canopies of live oaks and Spanish moss.
