“Love where you live and every day will feel like a vacation”
Choosing to settle in Wilmington NC isn’t a tough decision. It has so much to offer that the only difficult choice is deciding what activities to do! Downtown Wilmington alone is filled with enough culture and entertainment and fine dining to keep you busy for weeks! There is nothing like a stroll along the Riverwalk taking in the view of the Cape Fear River. Or dropping into the assortment of markets, unique boutiques, art galleries and locally owned outdoor cafés and restaurants that line the scenic walkway. Not to mention the history lesson that is displayed all throughout the picturesque river backdrop including the iconic WWII Battleship NORTH CAROLINA. The Brooklyn Arts District is every artist’s dream come true with historic buildings and old churches that have been refurbished and repurposed as event venues and new businesses, giving it an eclectic feel and incredible ambiance. Also known for its active nightlife, downtown Wilmington is home to many bars and entertainment venues that offer something for everyone!
