Historic Wilmington is really beautiful and the city has done a nice job preserving it. There are many different tours to do here, both during the day and at night.

Perfect day for a carriage ride. Enjoyed listening to our guide. Nice break from waking around on our own to see and hear about historic Wilmington. Recommend if you are tired of walking

We took the horse drawn carriage tour that was really nice with Dan our tour guide. The slow-paced ride allowed us time to sit back and enjoy the history of this great town.

Wilmington does a fine job of preserving its historic areas in a welcoming way. We were just here for a quick overnight, but we took the time to explore some of the downtown areas. They were getting ready for a major festival that promised to be a fun time. Parking was easy and inexpensive. The walk down the harbor and up through the historic neighborhoods was genuinely lovely.
