Anytime being on the water is relaxing for my wife and I. We spend our time off on the water all the time.

This area is so calm and inviting, I sat for almost an hour with my family just researching the river history and taking pictures. It was such a nice day to sit on the benches along Riverwalk.

From the downtown area, one has nice views of this river and its very unique lift draw bridge. We were lucky to see it raise and lower to let a large tug and its barge go by. The city did a great job in preserving much of the natural beauty of the river but still have it host a commercial pier and other working piers.

This is always a must see when visiting Wilmington! The Cape Fear River is always stunning as you walk down the boardwalk. There are so many places that you can also stop and eat and shop, but also just sit and take it all in! Go and enjoy an afternoon stroll. You will not regret it!
