Wilmington is a beautiful place with lots to do. There is the river and boardwalk with restaurants and shopping. The beaches are wonderful. So many beautiful parks

My favorite thing was to take the free ferry across to Southport. Also the beaches are spotless they have strict rules on trash and so it's so beautiful and clean.
