We had the pleasure of going to one of the Maritime Museum events tonite. The presentation was on the Ironclads used in the Cape Fear River during the Civil War. Very interesting.
We encourage everyone visiting Southport to put the Maritime Museum on your list of things to see. Great exhibits and lots of interesting artifacts and information. http://www.ncmaritimemuseums.com
The Robert Ruark Inn recently added a six passenger electric cart to take and pick up guests at the Ferry Docks or Marinas (Southport Marina, Indigo Plantation Marina or Deep Point Marina). Innkeeper Rick will also shuttle guests to and from the Southport Community Center (if attending a wedding), restaurant, Southport Maritime Museum or one of the many popular Southport shops.
The Robert Ruark Inn also has plenty of bicycles on hand to use as well. Seeing Southport on foot, bike or from the electric cart will make your stay at the Robert Ruark Inn perfect.
Lots of great things are going on in Historic Southport and at the Robert Ruark Inn. The popular Spring Festival is Easter Weekend, Provisions opened last week and Ocean Outfitters just opened in a new, large location on Moore Street. We also have some really cute new shops and restaurants in town. ROBERT RUARK INN: Now using Aveda bath/shower products (shampoo, conditioner & body wash) as well as boutique Botanic soaps.
The Robert Ruark Inn reopened its doors on March 1 after a short break over the winter season. Also new to the Inn are its new owners, Rick and Linda Pukenas. Same great town, same great property just new owner/operators. Wonderful breakfasts, wine/cheese in the afternoon, complimentary bottled water and 24/7 coffee bar.
