Holiday in Willington to discover a charming coastal city filled with azalea gardens, historical neighborhoods, and cozy cafes.
Get some historical perspective at Wrightsville Beach Municipal Complex and Airlie Gardens. Battleship North Carolina and Holden Beach will appeal to museum buffs. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Wilmington: Southport (Franklin Square Gallery & Bullfrog Corner), Old Baldy Lighthouse & Smith Island Museum (in Bald Head Island) and Surf City Pier (in Surf City). The adventure continues: wander the streets of Historic District, kick back and relax at Oak Island Beach, pick up some local products at Motts Channel Seafood, and contemplate the long history of Poplar Grove Plantation.

Expect a daytime high around 88°F in June, and nighttime lows around 70°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 8th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
