Vacationing in Wilmington, NC

While visiting the riverfront city of Wilmington, North Carolina, you can expect Southern charm and friendly faces. The area has many types of rental properties but the most popular is the downtown rental that allows for a vacation home in the middle of it all. Many downtown properties have wonderful views of the city along with gourmet kitchens and enough space for the entire family.

Battleship North Carolina

No visit to Wilmington would be complete without seeing Battleship North Carolina. When you're in town, you can't miss the WWII era battleship. You can tour the ship and see the decks, gun turrets and crew's quarters. Being on the ship allows you to imagine what it was like to live out on the South Pacific during the war. Walk through the tight quarters and think about being on the ship for long stretches of time with no land in sight. The ship has self-guided tours with easy to follow directions so you don't miss anything. From the deck you have a great view of the Carolina marshes where you may get the see the American alligator basking in the sun.

Local Gardens

Wilmington is filled with opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Airlie Gardens is a public garden along Bradley Creek where you can stroll through paths lined with live oaks, local flowers and butterfly gardens. The Airlie Oak, which dates back to 1545, is a must-see and is the North Carolina State Champion Live Oak. The gardens have festivals and celebrations throughout the year including special events during the Azalea and Camellia seasons. Another wonderful place for a walk is the New Hanover County Arboretum. There are seven acres of land filled with local plants that exemplify what is best grown in southeastern North Carolina. The koi pond is a fun place for children to feed the fish and offers a beautiful backdrop for a family photo. The kids will also have a fun time in the children's garden with its miniature cottage. Those who enjoy seeing roses will appreciate the different colors featured in the gardens.

The Local Beaches

While staying in your Coastal North Carolina vacation rental, you'll be in close proximity to several family friendly beaches including Kure Beach, Carolina Beach and Wrightsville Beach, which is the closest to the city. Taking the family for a beach day while staying in the area will allows the kids some time to play in the water and make sand castles. If you're thinking of a beach picnic, visit on of the many local restaurants to pick up sandwiches, drinks and everything you need for a fun meal, just be sure to keep an eye on those seagulls. They love an unattended picnic. The beaches around Wilmington have water sports, calm surf and opportunities for fishing with local charters.

Weather

The weather in Wilmington is fairly mild year round. There are occasional severe storms in the fall due to the proximity to the coast. Spring is a beautiful time to visit with flowers blooming and pleasant weather. Summer is great for those who don't mind hot and humid. If you prefer less crowds and don't mind cooler weather, winter is the off-season for travelers and can be a good time to explore the area and feel like you have it all to yourself.

How to Get Here

Many visitors to the area choose to drive in by private or rental car. There is also an airport in Wilmington as well as a bus depot.

A special thank you to Nancy for being such a gracious host in allowing us use of this great place. Look forward to next year!! G.K.

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        My family had a great time here and really liked the house. It's off the grid, with no neighbors in sight, but you have internet and cell service. It is also convenient to Montrose for supplies and the beautiful drives and hikes in the Uncompaghre Wilderness. I highly recommend this house for your stay in wilder Colorado.
