Every day we were in Wilmington we walked up and down the Riverwalk, taking in the beautiful scenery and views. Grab a bench with your coffee and do some people watching. It was fun to strike up conversations with those walking by.

The River walk has to be one of the most scenic places to walk on the whole east coast. There are ships and boats passing slowly along side many restaurants and shops. Awesome place for a date!

This is a nice wood dock walk through the best area of downtown Wilmington. You will pass a lot of historic buildings, government buildings, the battleship, and have a nice view of the memorial bridge. There are plenty of access ramps for folks with disabilities....More
