Where was Safe Haven filmed?

Some readers suggested to check out the places where Safe Haven was filmed, the movie from 2013 inspired on a novel by Nicholas Sparks. The film is a classic romantic tale set in a gorgeous real town called Southport, situated somewhere south of the Mason–Dixon line, as one of the characters say.

Julianne Hough (Dancing with the Stars, Grease Live) and Josh Duhamel (Transformers, Las Vegas) are the cutie couple blessed by actress Cobie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother).

Safe Haven was filmed in Southport and Wilmington in North Carolina. This is an almost spoiler (and sugar)-free compilation of the most interesting filming locations for this production:

Safe Haven locations
The central location of the movie is the general store, that was situated almost in front of Alex's House in Brunswick St.
<< MINI-SPOILER >> Ryan's Port Market was built for the movie and burned down, so it doesn't exist anymore.
