As in any coastal region, the lifestyle on Topsail Island, N.C., is laidback. But while local residents may take a casual approach to recreation and what they wear, they take their family life and community quite seriously. Topsail Beach, North Topsail Beach and Surf City may be vacation-oriented communities, but they’re also caring and conscientious communities with year-round residents who take pride in their hometowns.
