Great way to learn something about Southport. Though there are museums, etc., this is a fun way to see the area and addtionally learn about more contemporary topics like local movie and TV productions -- think Safe Haven and Under the Dome.

We really enjoyed Steve’s tour of Southport today. He is very entertaining and knowledgeable about the history of Southport, from its role in the Civil War to its place in the movie and tv history. We highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Southport.
