Welcome to Wilmington

Wilmington is an old colonial port city set between the Cape Fear River and the Atlantic coastline in the southeastern corner of North Carolina. With over 250 years of European and African settlement in the area, Wilmington has one of the largest historic districts in the south, and Victorian buildings and houses line streets shaded by moss-draped live oak trees. The 2-mile-long Wilmington Riverwalk along the scenic river shore features marinas, a fishing pier, markets, boutiques, art galleries, and outdoor cafes. Minutes away, beautiful beaches and authentic beach towns invite days of play, while protected barrier island waters and the open Atlantic offer many possibilities for boating and fishing.
