The Day Trip Experience

The Culture Lover Experience

 

LOCATION: HISTORIC DOWNTOWN WILMINGTON

Perhaps the best way to get to know Wilmington is by walking the storied streets of the Cape Fear River’s Riverwalk. Between the original cobblestone, Colonial Era architecture, and legendary nautical excursions, Wilmington’s downtown is an exciting lesson in history mixed with local markets, modern boutiques, art galleries, and open-air eateries.

Your Morning Stroll

FLAVORS TO SAVOR

One of the best ways to get to know Wilmington is through its low–country flavor. We recommend Downtown Market Street’s longest-standing restaurant, The Dixie Grill. This local hot spot has been serving unique southern fare since the 1920’s Gatsby era.

BATTLESHIP NORTH CAROLINA

Imagine sleeping in a battleship’s berth during World War II or firing a ship’s guns at Wilmington's most historic naval landmark. The Battleship North Carolina illustrates what life was like for the soldiers who protected our country during World War II’s naval attacks.
