Downtown Wilmington explorers who want to grab a quick cup of coffee and a warm homemade treat can make an easy stop along Front Street at the 24 South Coffee House. This chic and charming establishment has a collection of small cozy tables, local artworks adorning the walls, and a hefty selection of coffee drinks, cold refreshing drinks, and goodies to make any day a little sweeter in the Port City.

Though this coffee shop is fairly new, the location is one of the oldest in town, and is within easy walking distance of the famed Wilmington Riverwalk for visitors who’d rather tour the city with a hot cup of coffee or a fresh smoothie or Italian soda in hand. Patrons will also find some more unusual warm weather items on the menu, like an Espresso Milkshake and a Matcha Frappe with sweet green tea, ice and milk blended together, as well as a nice array of breakfast items and sweet treats, including bagels and buttery croissants, oatmeal, more than a dozen different kinds of muffins, and ice cold gelato. With a nice infusion of Italian fare in a traditional coffee house environment, 24 South Coffee House is a new venue that has plenty of original and historic Wilmington charm.

The sunny Wrightsville Beach Park, conveniently located in the heart of town, is a fantastic destination for an outdoor adventure that doesn't necessarily entail a trip to the beach.
