Just inland of the Atlantic Ocean along coastal North Carolina, Wilmington is a charming seaside city home to UNC Wilmington.
Be sure to visit Battleship North Carolina, or head to the Cotton Exchange of Wilmington for some shopping. Just two hours from Raleigh, Wilmington is served by the Wilmington International Airport, and easily accessible from I-40. Enjoy revisiting the Wilmington Railroad Museum for an afternoon of miniature trains, and charming conductor hats.
For a look at some historic architecture, be sure to visit the 1852 Latimer House Museum, or the Bellamy Mansion Museum. For more kid-friendly fun, check out the Tregembo Animal Park – southeastern North Carolina's oldest zoo – or catch a game with the Wilmington Hammerheads at Legion Stadium.
Before the trip is over, some beach fun is a must. Head east a few miles to Wrightsville Beach – take a dip in the ocean, or try some fishing from one of the docks.
