“surprisingly quiet”
Reviewed August 27, 2014

I'm not sure what I expected, but downtown Wilmington is very quiet with not alot to do. I didn't expect a NYC or Boston, but we were there on a weekend and work week days and sometimes there was no one on the street?

“Quaint!”
Reviewed August 25, 2014

Make sure you take the time to walk and browse Front Street and Main Street. Also, don't miss the side streets. Lots of unique shops. Very safe area.

“walk around”

We got to see the red dress run-mostly men in red dresses.
Very nice to see activity on a Tuesday night

“Great views”

We like to go get a nice cream and sit in front of the river.
Great ice cream. Parking may be tricky!

“Check it out!”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

A great place to spend the day if you came to the beach. Lots of shops and places to hang out, grab a bite to eat, take in scenic views, and hang out and grab a drink with friends downtown late night.

I highly recommend it if you are a foodie, a history buff, someone looking for a good time, or want to have a day out with your family. Lots of entertainment comes through as well, and other events so keep updated with Wilmington's websites to see what the schedules look like and plan your trip.
