Hampstead, Wilmington, North Carolina

Although locals refer to "Hampstead" as if it is a city, Hampstead is actually an unincorporated community within the Wilmington Metropolitan Statistical Area, in Pender County. Between Wilmington and Jacksonville, Hampstead lies along the Atlantic coast and U.S. Route 17.
Pender County has big plans for Hampstead, with an expanded county water system, and additional sewer systems. NCDOT has proposed a Hampstead bypass that would tie into the new I-140 Wilmington bypass. Highway 17 was recently upgraded to a 4-lane road in an effort to accommodate area growth.
Hampstead is just minutes from the beautiful beaches of Topsail Island, with the resort-style attractions of Surf City, Topsail Beach, and North Topsail.
