All reviews the river walk the cape fear river nice walk restaurants and shops across the river coast guard cutter great place to walk leisurely stroll convention center the pilot house beautiful scenery farmers market downtown area the uss north carolina cotton exchange front street historic district
Wilmington is beautiful . The most incredible sunsets across the river, behind the Battleship!! Great food and shopping. The cobblestones and uneven bricks make navigating downtown almost impossible for a wheelchair, however the river walk is expanding and is beautifully done. Making more of the...More
Great opportunity to stretch your legs and see the waterfront. Wilmington is coming back from the hurricane. There are numerous construction project going on. If the weather is nice you can walk by the Train Museum and a Coast Guard Cutter. Lots of restaurants, shops,...More
It was in the mid 70's last night as we walked along the riverwalk. Nearly no one around (at 6pm). It was a beautiful evening and I love walking this route. Incredible we are in November and have no need for a jacket. Perfect place...More
The boardwalk has been extended to the bridge by about a mile or so now. It's one of the features that brought me to Wilmington. It's pleasant to walk and there's ice cream shops, boat bars and tours and a wine bar along with several...More
If weather is tolerable (it was great when we were there), this is worth burning off a few calories before heading over to Kilwins for Ice Cream! Clean place, well managed and easy to walk through a lot of the blocks in this general part...More

The Pilot House and The George are both good choices depending on what type of food you are looking for too. Elijah's is another great choice for dinner on the river. If you are looking for dinner on the ocean at Wrightsville we are always happy with Oceanic. We also love South Beach Grill at Wrightsville Beach. If you sit on the patio you may be able to catch the sunset there too. There are many great restaurants on the river walk though. For a night cap on the river walk hit the Front Street Brewery. A lot of the restaurants on Front Street do not Front the river. So you may be able to enjoy the sunset on the river walk and then dine at one of the many restaurants on Front Street. Good luck! Wilmington is one of our favorite small beach towns!!
