There were a few other things I would have loved to do in the area provided I had the time. There is always a list of places I have pending somehow. Definitely checkout the visitors bureau since they have all the maps and you can use the walking map to check out all places within walking distance. They also have an app you can use on your phone for your own guided tours of the place. They have a cruise of the Cape Fear river (no relation to the movie) which would have been fun to do but was not available the days I planned on being there. A walk along the river front is highly recommended. Cute shops, restaurants and lovely historic building dot the water. The railroad museum and the Battleship N. Carolina are other points of interest. Also in Wrightsville Beach, additional dining I can recommend are South Beach Grille, Tower 7 and Trolly stop as well as Cafe del Mar, Causeway Cafe and Oceans, and shopping at the Forum, Mayfair Center or Lumina Station. You can also visit Wrightsville Beach Kayak for some fun in the water or walk The Loop which is a 2.45 mile fitness trail that circles the island and frequented by local walkers, joggers, etc. You can also check out the Wrightsville Beach Museum and Coastal Education Center if that sort of thing piques your interest. Overall, I would say Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach are fantastic getaway locations from Atlanta with something for everyone in the family to indulge in and do. You can choose to just laze at the water front or get active and walk around learning more about the local history and businesses. I leave you here with some pictures from the rest of the trip I have not shared before. Thanks WB and Wilmington NC for fantastic time - I will be back!
