Wilmington Overflows with Coastal Activities
Wilmington is one Southern destination with something for everyone. Explore the city's National Register Historic District, which spans 230-plus blocks of churches, classic architecture, moss-draped live oaks, brick-lined streets and antebellum homes. Enjoy live music, performing arts, and museum exhibitions. Celebrate the arrival of spring and all things Southern culture and arts in April during the world-famous North Carolina Azalea Festival.
Visit Airlie Gardens or stroll along the pedestrian-friendly Riverwalk lined with shops and cafes and the Port City Marina. Then hop aboard a water taxi to the famous World War II Battleship NORTH CAROLINA, one of USA TODAY's Best North Carolina Attractions, or take a scenic cruise or sightseeing tour. Bring your family to ride water slides at Jungle Rapids Family Fun Park or explore further out at one of our three beautiful island beaches.
