Fall Things to Do in Wilmington, NC

Seek New Landscapes

Autumn is the ideal time to awaken the senses with a getaway to Wilmington and our island beaches. With mild temperatures and smaller crowds, it’s the perfect time to explore the unique character of our historic neighborhoods and beach towns just minutes away. Set sail on a Cape Fear River cruise, tour the historic district on a horse-drawn carriage ride or embark on a self-guided tour of downtown Wilmington. Explore our lively arts scene, wander through scenic parks and gardens or sip local brews and craft cocktails with a view. Escape to three island beaches and hit the water with private cruises to uninhabited islands or guided kayak eco-adventures and then join a local foodie tour to savor coastal flavors.
