We recently spent a weekend in Wilmington and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We loved that it was a bit less crowded. The weather in North Carolina is also mild in the winter months and the weekend we visited it was 60 degrees!
Here is what we got to explore, eat and enjoy. All in less that 36 hours in town.
- Brunch at Pinpoint
- Boat ride with Wilmington Water Tours
- Taste of Carolina Tour
- Play at Thalian Theatre
- Brunch and Exhibits at the CAM Museum
- Stop by the Battleship
- Shopping around downtown Wilmington
- Visit the Riverwalk
This is a great itinerary if you are looking to get away from Raleigh for the weekend. It is a short ride at just 2 hours. We left Saturday morning around 8 and were there by 10. I must admit we did pack a lot in on weekend but it was all really fun.
