Wilmington, located along the beautiful southeastern North Carolina coast, is the state’s largest coastal city. Set back along the Cape Fear River, Wilmington maintains a friendly, down-home feeling.
The city combines a rich, beautiful historic district—complete with museums and restored mansions—to a lively uptown nightlife, created in combination by a mild seasonal climate and the very desirable University of North Carolina, Wilmington campus.
Adjacent to the city are uncrowded stretches of calm sandy beaches, perfect for family events or long romantic strolls. Spend afternoons on the beach with friends and family or curl up with a good book during the cool evenings. Amazing sunrises and sunsets are always worth the short drive to the beach. Special annual events such as the Azalea Festival and the Riverfest keep the city busy with fun and things to do year round.
