Sightseeing

Walk across Red Cross St, and take a right on Walnut. Walk straight for about 6-7 blocks and you'll hit the boardwalk. From there, head South and you'll be able to enjoy all of the restaurants and bars along the way. Wilmington is growing fast so many new places are opening monthly!

About 20-25 minutes from downtown Wilmington, but if you have the time, you will really enjoy this little beach town. Casual eating, great beaches.. and don't miss their Ocean Grill & Tiki Bar (also recommended under drinks/nightlife). They have fireworks every Friday. Great for families and parties.
