History, architecture and art. Recreation, entertainment and natural beauty. From the river banks to the ocean beaches, it’s all right here, right beside RiverLights.
Wilmington is a beautifully diverse port city where the Antebellum South meets modern influences. This dynamic town offers a lineup of events and attractions unmatched in the region. Locals and visitors enjoy everything from renowned museums to live concerts to excellent theater, and from water sports to beer fests to exceptional dining.

Navigate your way to the U.S. Battleship NORTH CAROLINA, the state’s World War II memorial, where the distinguished service and sacrifices of sailors are honored today. Enjoy a relaxing stroll along the Wilmington Riverwalk, catch a show, or dance well into the evening at a local nightclub.

When it’s time to go home, you’ll return to the breathtakingly beautiful and endlessly entertaining Cape Fear River, the centerpiece of RiverLights and what truly separates it from any other waterfront community in the Wilmington area.
