Brick and cobblestone pavers line many of the streets, while old trolley tracks harken back to Wilmington’s oldest public transportation lines. Historic homes dating from before the American Civil War, such as Bellamy Mansion, The Burgwin-Wright Home, and the John A. Taylor Home are just a few of the famous building that attract thousands of visitors each year. Coastal Carolina is home to Old Baldy, the oldest standing lighthouse in North Carolina. The nearby town of Southport is filled with nautical lore. Fort Fisher, located past Carolina Beach, is the location of one of the most pivotal points in the history of the American Civil War. Wherever you look when visiting Coastal Carolina, there is a story waiting to be told.
If you have your mind on finding some great deals and locally made artisan trinkets, you’re in the right spot. All across the Southeast you will find plenty of farmers markets with fresh produce, seafood, and crafts. Downtown Wilmington itself has become an epicenter for these unique little boutiques and markets. Eclectic shops, art galleries, and jewelry stores line the streets of this historic skyline. The Cotton Exchange, home to 30 locally owned small businesses, spans across eight historic buildings and will provide you with all the shopping you could ask for.
