Historic Downtown

<p>One of the main attractions of this lovely town is its historic downtown area. It encompasses nearly 300 blocks and is considered one of the largest designated historic districts in all of the United States. Some of the monuments you might see on an afternoon stroll are the George Davis Monument, the Confederate Memorial, The Bellamy Mansion and more. Recent demolitions have paved the way for more development, but this preserved historic area will always serve as a reminder of Wilmington's past.</p>

Wrightsville Beach

<p>The main reason locals and tourists alike come to Wilmington is simple the beaches! There are a number to choose from, like Carolina Beach and Kure Beach (both rightfully crowded in the summer), but if you want something a little more private with some beautiful views and entertainment on the piers, head to Wrightsville for all your fun in the sun needs. There's a beautiful restaurant overlooking the water that serves seafood caught fresh that day, and even an old fashioned arcade for the kids to play on while mom and dad are sneaking away for some private time.</p>

EUE Screen Gems Studio

<p>What most people don't know about Wilmington is that it's the third largest film and TV production site outside of LA. There are typically stars walking the streets, film crews on location, and even set tours that you can take at the studios themselves. Take a stroll through Dawson's Creek and One Tree Hill, or see where Kenny Powers does his thing for Eastbound &amp; Down. North Carolina has a rich film history and it's only grown since its inception with no signs of stopping.</p>
