Historic District, Wilmington

(4.5/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
Historic District offers a window into the 19th and 20th centuries. The neighborhood features 151 buildings, many of which are three-story, red-brick townhouses. Others are wooden Victorian homes with large front porches. You'll also see some grander homes that played a role in the town's early history. Look for historical markers that identify these houses and tell their stories. Consider touring the neighborhood on a horse-drawn tram with a guide. After browsing the boutiques, head to the cozy bars.
