Cape Fear River in Wilmington, NC, stunning on its own, is highlighted by nearly two miles of Riverwalk and that is just the beginning! In addition to natural beauty the Cape Fear River area in Wilmington has antebellum architecture lining its banks as well as beautiful gardens ready to astound visitors. After a day of touring the plantations of Wilmington, visitors can take a horse drawn carriage ride, or take a ghost tour before sampling some great port city cuisine. And with the area so steeped in history try a guided history walking tour of Wilmington, or a haunted pub crawl through the watering holes of Wilmington. Just over the bridge spanning Cape Fear is the Battleship, open to visitors, highlighting our brave men who fought over 70 years ago. Beautiful downtown Wilmington has so many things to do, but don’t forget about its neighbors; Kure Beach, Carolina Beach, and Wrightsville Beach.
