“Very pleasant”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Words like quaint, comfortable, fun, scenic, good eating come to mind. Excellent river walk. Weekend night life pretty vibrant, and very important, cheap public parking lots!

“Nice Walk”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Very pretty walk along the waterfront. Early in the season for a lot of traffic on the river. There are some interesting buildings on and just off of the walk. Took a fair amount of architectural pictures. You have to love the South - every resident you meet at least passes the time of day and many ask if they can help you. Having a camera around your neck may give them a clue you're a visitor, but none the less very pleasant.

“Beautiful and scenic!”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

Southern charm, beautifully restorned homes that leave quite an impression! Wilmington has an extensive historic district that begs to be toured on foot. Take the time to stroll the tree lined streets---you might just find yourself in front of a tv/film location since so many popular tv shows and films are set in Wilmington.

“Tranquil and Pretty”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

It was a nice walk through the historic district. Well kept homes and beautiful gardens. We walked from the hotel to the areas with lots of antique shops. I would suggest driving from hotel to this area. There were a few areas we walked through that made me a bit nervous.
