Wilmington, situated on the beautiful North Carolina coast, is the state’s largest coastal city. Set back along the Cape Fear River, Wilmington maintains a friendly, down-home feeling.
Today, the beautiful city combines a historic district—complete with museums and historic buildings—to the uptown nightlife created in combination by the mild evening climate and the economically stimulating University of North Carolina, Wilmington campus.
Adjacent to the city are calm sandy beaches, perfect for family events or long romantic strolls. You can spend your afternoons playing Frisbee on the beach with friends and family or curl up with a good book on your patio during those cool evenings. Special events such as the Azalea Festival and the Riverfest keep the city busy with life, commerce and things to do year round.
