Learn more about Wilmington

Founded in 1739, Wilmington is sandwiched between the Cape Fear River and the Atlantic Ocean giving it the best of both worlds – the culture of the historic downtown and the relaxation of beach life. Downtown, visitors can take a carriage ride along the Cape Fear River to view converted historic buildings and quaint Victorian homes or stop at one of the many unique shops and restaurants. On the Atlantic side of New Hanover County, visitors have the choice between Wrightsville Beach, Carolina Beach, and Kure Beach. They can lie out with their toes in the sand and watch the pelicans fly by, or if they prefer something faster paced, the Wilmington area is a popular destination for surfers.

Wilmington’s mild climate change is favorable to those wanting to escape the harsh winters of the North or the constant heat of the far South. The weather stays warm into the beginning of fall, but the color changes that many love still occur. Matter-of-fact, Flowers bloom throughout the winter leading to an amazing color display in the spring when beautiful pink and white azaleas, and dogwoods fill the streets of Wilmington with Southern charm.
