Traveler Reviews of Wilmington

MrsJBolt rates Wilmington
Wilmington is unique. It is spread out to encompass a port & river, a university, and beautiful beaches nearby. The historic area near the river is a quiet place to stroll in & out of little stores and get a great bite to eat. The University of North Carolina at Wilmington sprawls out and can be a great place to pop in for a game of frisbee. But the beaches around Wilmington are lovely. Not as wide as the beaches to the north, but still a great time for a getaway or family vacation. Topsail Beach & Carolina Beach are typical beach towns, Wrightsville Beach is more flashy, and places like Bald Head Island & Southport are hideaways to the south. Tour the Battleship that sits just outside of Downtown and explore the sets of a few of the Wilmington based studios. Be sure to eat seafood too, fresh & yummy!
