Just minutes from nearby Atlantic beaches, Wilmington, North Carolina offers unique business and recreational opportunities. In 2008, the National Trust for Historic Preservation named Wilmington, North Carolina, one of its Dozen Distinctive Destinations, citing the port city's 300-year heritage and its collection of grand old mansions, riverboats, historic museums, battleships, splendid gardens and Civil War sites. Wilmington also has a deep military heritage and is currently home port for the USCGC Diligence, a United States Coast Guard medium endurance cutter. Also in Wilmington is the World War II Battleship USS North Carolina, now a war memorial. Enjoy our free Wi-Fi in all locations! See you soon!
