Wilmington

4.2
Holiday in Willington to discover a charming coastal city filled with azalea gardens, historical neighborhoods, and cozy cafes. If you stay in the city for more than a day during a driving trip along the coast, you can explore the riverfront during the night--when the area becomes a playground for students, tourists, celebrities, and craft beer lovers. The town houses so many movie studios that some have started calling it "Wilmywood." Popular TV series "Dawson's Creek" was filmed there, as was the blockbuster "Iron Man 3." Wilmington is in North Carolina Coast. Plan your trip to Wilmington and other United States destinations using our handy United States route builder website.
