Wilmington NC Things To Do
Overflowing 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.
To help reduce the risk to our community and visitors, attractions and tours in New Hanover County are closed. Our destination is still open for travel as you can explore one of our many parks, gardens and trails. We recommend contacting businesses directly for the most up to date information.
