Contact us for visitor information for this year-round destination that transcends coastal visitor experiences. Take a stroll on the scenic Riverwalk lined with shops and cafes or through historic downtown, and you’ll find yourself surrounded by breweries, music, unique eats, theater and unrivaled adventures around every corner. It’s just a short drive from the award-winning riverfront to the oceanfront through Wilmington’s thriving midtown, where you’ll find parks, gardens, museums, a water park and city amenities. Carolina, Kure and Wrightsville beaches are well known for their beloved coastlines, but there is much more to be discovered there from farm- and sea-to- table dining to live music and festivals to an aquarium. Wilmington and beaches is the perfect place to stray off course for a coastal experience like no other in the city, at the beach and beyond.
