My favorite walk to to beach ! Farmers market displaying some local North Carolina peaches The USS North Carolina. A real battleship that is open to the public to tour. Besides looking at the massive guns on deck, you can also tour the inside although it does get hot in there Frog n ssssnake ! Awesome place to visit and learn history. You can walk through the entire ship and see what it was like on a real WWII Battleship. Battleship North Carolina Good food and atmosphere. A boat ride is a nice way to cool off on a hot day. Farmers market in Downtown Wilmington MICHAELS SEAFOOD RESTAURANT. Yuuuuummmmmy! There's a cute bar in downtown wilmington, but what makes it interesting is the skee ball machines inside. They house one of the four skee ball leagues in the country.
These four leagues have competitions by streaming their games to each other live from other bars. The machines are open for anyone to play at the bar too. Memorial Day View of river and USS NC ship from outdoor dining patio of this good Catalan style restaurant and wine bar, serving lunch and dinner.
