Return visit did not disappoint. If you've not been here, put it on your list. Lots of restaurants and bars to choose from, something for everyone.

So much history in Wilmington. Beautiful area to walk around. We also took the horse and trolley history tour, which was interesting. A lot of films were made throughout the area. The buildings are beautiful. A lot of wonderful photo ops.

If you have a chance walk around the historic district and you would be amazed at the history in this town. There is a lot of civil war but there is also recent events. There are even movies made such as Wilmington on Fire.
