Fall Things to Do

Experience A Sense-sational Fall Getaway

Autumn is the perfect time to awaken the senses with a getaway to Wilmington and our island beaches. With mild temperatures, smaller crowds and off-season rates, it’s the perfect time to explore the unique character of our neighborhoods and nearby beach towns. Set sail on a Cape Fear River cruise, tour the town on a horse-drawn carriage ride or embark on a self-guided walking tour of historic downtown Wilmington. Explore our lively arts scene, wander through scenic parks and gardens or sip on local brews and craft cocktails with a view.
