Did not know what to expect and were very impressesed. I think Charleston and New Orleans when I contemplate historic dictricts. Wilmington was fascinating and has all the bells and whistles. Great place to walk and explore.

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.
