Cheers to Friday! We love our salty little coastal town and all it has to offer, so we thought we’d share some of our favorite things to do in Wilmington, NC. Whether you’re visiting for the first time, visit every year, or you're a local, we hope this roundup inspires some fun ideas for your next outing!
Edge of Urge is a must when in WIlmington. This local shop sells an eclectic mix of items from local vendors and creatives. Perfect for grabbing a gift for your BFF, or picking up a little something for yourself.
Farmin' on Front is a new grocery store downtown that has a growler fill station, an herb garden that you trim yourself, and an amazing assortment of special waters and champagne! They also stock fun goodies from local vendors, like these tote bags from one of our favorites, The Peppermill Shop!
Wilmington.Tours is a MUST download app. With four tours to choose from (including a Pub Crawl!) you’ll find the perfect self-guided tour for you. Follow the narrated tour around town and learn all about Wilmington’s rich history!
Wilmingtonians love their drinks and right now small craft breweries are popping up everywhere you look! This Ale Trail will transport you to all the favorites and allow you to enjoy yourself without worrying about driving home at the end of the night.
4th Friday is held downtown - guess when?! - on the 4th Friday of every month. It's a wonderful opportunity to walk around beautiful downtown Wilmington while perusing amazing local artists. Many galleries also offer complimentary wine or light snacks while you shop. Win, win!
The Beer + Wine Tour is a super unique opportunity for locals and visitors alike. If you’re in town when this annual event is happening, be sure to snag a ticket! Shops of all sorts open up their doors and provide sips and nibbles while you browse their offerings. This is a one of a kind chance to mix a pub crawl with shopping - a dangerous but oh-so-enjoyable combination!
Here's to the weekend and all the fun things it brings!
