Wilmington is one of the most beautiful cities on the North Carolina coast. Founded over 250 years ago as a thriving port city on the banks of the Cape Fear River, Wilmington has a rich past.

Many fascinating buildings and historic sites are open to visitors, so you can easily spend a few days exploring.
During your visit you can browse the many quaint shops in the Historic District or just take a “southern-style stroll” down brick streets rich in architecture. You may even find yourself in the middle of a commercial or scene from a TV show… Revolution filmed its first season in Wilmington. Other shows filmed in Wilmington include Sleepy Hollow, Dawson’s Creek, and One Tree Hill.
