Wilmington is a mesmerizing port city in North Carolina with the Cape Fear River on the west and the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway on the east. It is one of the best places on the East Coast and has been voted the best river city three years in a row by USA Today.
The weather is perfect with a warm, temperate climate; winters are mild with hardly any snow. The old colonial vibe of Wilmington is complemented by its warm and friendly people. It has a serene pace of life with a small town charm and is yet cosmopolitan with big-city amenities and a bustling skyline.
There’s a lot to see and do for everyone here. The downtown Riverwalk is lively and historic. The performing arts scene is bustling and so are music festivals, concerts and fests. There are museums, galleries and the WWII battleship museum, USS North Carolina is moored here too. The resplendent boat parade on Christmas is a sight to behold.
Wilmington is choc-a-bloc with beautiful parks and the outdoor activity scene is quite active – running, biking, bowling, tennis, golf, boating, swimming, boardwalking, kayaking and more adventurous water sports also. You can enjoy horse and buggy rides in the city, cast a line for some exotic fish or just spend the night gazing at the stars.
The multitude of dining options boasts of both Carolina barbecue and global cuisines. Shopping venues are top-class with a mix of big brands and vibrant locally owned shops. There are some fine school options and Wilmington is home to the University of North Carolina.
Make Wilmington your home to enjoy a rich past and a bright future. You can live right on the river or amidst a transcendently private and tranquil nature setting. And wherever you choose to live, there will always be a vibrant and pristine beach just fifteen minutes away.
