Local Area Information
Wilmington features an historic downtown riverfront, three beautiful island beaches (Carolina Beach, Kure Beach and Wrightsville Beach) and North Carolina’s largest boutique convention center on the coast. We encourage you to explore what Techno’s new home has to offer.
The heart of Wilmington is concentrated in its lively, walkable river district, which showcases the city’s progressive culture and historic setting. Defined by its rich past and a bright future, Wilmington, NC, is a vibrant riverfront city with timeless character that has preserved its historic places, while fostering an ever-evolving independent spirit. From the charm of its moss-draped, brick-lined historic district to the evolving north-end of its river district, there are new things to discover around every corner.
Wilmington’s River District alone has over 40 locally owned restaurants and pubs, with cafés and restaurants lining the Riverwalk, Front Street, and beyond. Discover why downtown Wilmington was voted in USA Today’s 10Best Readers’ Choice awards as the “#1 Best Al Fresco Dining Neighborhood.” Follow the Wilmington Ale Trail to find craft breweries and bottle shops or explore new riverfront restaurants featuring rooftop bars along the River District’s north end.
