Downtown Wilmington reminds me of Charleston. Great views, food, and so much to do! We enjoy the horse carriage rides, the trolley ride, the boat ride, and the great shopping and good food. The Kilwin's Chocolates and Ice Cream Shop is my favorite stop! There are many beautiful homes and churches that we would like to visit. There are so many options!

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.
