Downtown Wilmington

Wilmington, NC

Wedged between the Cape Fear River on the west side and the Atlantic Ocean on the east side, Wilmington is the ideal city – minutes from the Coastal Carolina beaches, a few hours from the mountains, and tucked along the river. Downtown Wilmington’s riverfront area was once declared “the Best American Riverfront” by USA Today. With a history dating back to 1737, Downtown Wilmington is part of the Wilmington Historic District, which contains more than 875 historic buildings. The Bellamy Mansion, a downtown landmark built around 1859, is considered one of the best examples of antebellum architecture in the state.

Your Downtown Wilmington apartment will provide access to the beautiful downtown shopping district. This area is filled with historic architecture, brick-paved walkways, period lighting, and gorgeous crepe myrtles offering pops of brilliant pink in the summer. Downtown Wilmington is very pedestrian-friendly, featuring wide sidewalks lined with shops and restaurants. Gorgeous Wrightsville Beach provides an afternoon of surfing, swimming, and beachcombing. Head to Kure Beach and try fishing off the oldest fishing pier along the Atlantic coast.

Downtown Wilmington is filled with things to do: exploring the Battleship North Carolina, a WWII battleship turned museum; taking a trolley or horse-drawn carriage tour of the historic sites; exploring the shops, sidewalk cafes, breweries, and bars along Market Street; and taking the kids to the Children’s Museum of Wilmington for a day of exploring and learning. Downtown Wilmington apartments also provide easy access to the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and Cape Fear Community College, the beaches and campgrounds of Masonboro Island, and the Burgwin-Wright House and Gardens, a historic house museum built in the 1770s.
