  • I found a post card with this exact view! Beautiful December day to be on the waterfront. Areas to sit were clean and sturdy.  more »
  • You haven't been to Wilmington if you have not seen the Cape Fear River.))) Better yet, take time for River tours.

  • If you go downtown and take the river boardwalk you will enjoy a lot of fun activities, see the sun go down, watch the boats on the river and see the romantic side of life walking along.  more »
