On any warm summer night in Wilmington, North Carolina, there’s bound to be a grassy lawn or back patio filled with music, good drinks, and a beach-y breeze coming off the water. If the mood is right, those spaces will also have happy couples dancing the night away — and there’s only one top locals’ choice when it comes to the dance style!
A popular spot for outdoorsmen, photographers, family campers, beachgoers, and everyone in between, Masonboro Island Reserve offers something for all ages to discover. It’s located just off the coast of Wilmington, only a few miles from RiverLights.
With its charming homes, river-facing historic downtown, and lush natural surroundings, it’s no wonder why Wilmington makes the perfect set for Hollywood smashes and small indie films alike. In fact, nearly 1,000 productions have been shot in North Carolina since 1980, and more than 500 of them right here in the Wilmington region.
