“Historic Wilmington is great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

THe best part of historic downtown Wilmington is you can take a horse drawn trolley ride to see it all and get aquainted with it. I suggest you take that tour first and then you will know where you want to go next! The salted caramel ice cream is amazing!

“Wonderful Day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

I love visiting the city and just wandering around exploring the historic district. Beautiful buildings, great shops and restaurants. I haven't taken the trolley tour yet, but it would be good to learn more about the area and specific buildings. Love the ghost tour because they give you some history of the area. There's just so much history here and it's enjoyable to walk around and just spend the day exploring (or in my case multiple days!)
