SOUTHPORT, NC (WWAY)–The competition is fierce for the title of “Happiest Seaside Town” from Coastal Living Magazine. Southport made it to the final ten. Southport is up against coast towns of California, Florida and George to name a few.
Southport leaders and residents are trying to push it up to number one.
Cindy Brochure, Southport tourism director, says this win could be mean a lot to their economy. "The way that the competition is designed is you stay on the website forever so it keeps giving and giving as far as publicity.” Brochure says the whole Southport community has gotten involved to get people out to vote and show everyone who is the number one happiest place by the sea.
