Take the horse and carriage tour, it is well worth it for the $12 or $5 for kids! It is relaxing and get to see all of the beautiful victorian homes in Wilmington and all they are doing to restore and keep this beautiful place so nice. It really is gorgeous and the tour guide was funny and fun. It is a deal, we enjoyed it at night and easy to get every hour, right downtown.

We came to town to see the Battleship, but will come back because of the historic downtown. We took the boat river tour. Used the water taxi, Had a very nice horse drawn carrige tour. We loved the shops and the resturants. We are planning to come back next year when we are on vacation.

This wasn’t our first visit here and it only gets better! We visited nearly every store and bought a number of gift items and food. It is a friendly and charming historic downtown. The variety of restaurants and retail is great. The architecture alone is worth going downtown. Visitors won’t be disappointed.
