If you like history, cobblestones, the sounds of a waterfront port, and southern hospitality, you'll love Wilmington's Historic district.
Trolley tours, boat cruises. live oaks, Spanish moss and over 40 restaurants. We loved walking the river front board walk and sitting on a bench and eating ice cream. The only thing I would have liked to have seen are the Off/On trolleys or shuttles.

Absolutely the best place in Wilmington is to stay in the old town area... Wonderful atmosphere and easy to get around, lots of places to visit and enjoy...

These directions lead to a modern housing development and there was nothing remotely historic. Don't waste your time.

We loved walking around looking at the old buildings and houses. Don't know if kids would enjoy it. Most was clean and well kept. Neat place to visit.
