Residents of St. James Plantation would tell you that there’s no better place to spend your summer than right here in Southport. Whether you’re vacationing in the area or you’ve retired and purchased your very own piece of St. James Plantation real estate, this is the place to be. This is a place where you’ll feel a sense of community among the residents, a place where you can connect with your neighbors and feel a part of rather than apart from.
