Water, Water Everywhere
In the greater Wilmington area, as in historic downtown, it’s all about the
water. The Northeast Cape Fear River converges with the Cape Fear River, on
which the heart of town is centered. The Cape Fear converges with the Brunswick River, which leads into the Atlantic. And, all along and in between these
points of convergence and flow are endless activities that fulfill both a need for
adventure and for tranquility.
Wrightsville Beach, Carolina Beach and Kure Beach are within New Hanover
County lines and are considered part of the greater Wilmington area. Whether
hanging on the pristine, resort-like shores of Wrightsville, the family-friendly
town of Carolina Beach or the quieter side of beach life on Kure Beach, there’s
no shortage of things to do, great places to eat and fun to be had.
Wilmington is a place that sticks with you. It has a little bit of everything
through the lens of a peppered and intriguing past. It’s a place to click your
heels to, because, there’s no place like Wilmington.
