Visitors who are en route to the beach and are in the mood for a quick breakfast or lunch on the go can pop into the convenient and surprisingly diverse Beach Bagels. Located just a shell’s through away from the bridge to the beach, this fresh bagel shop offers a world of sandwiches that verge on the unique, and are always inspired and terribly filling.

Breakfast fans will find plenty of traditional sandwiches, like egg and cheese, which are piled on top a bagel of the patron’s choice, as well as some more creative selections, like the recent special "Southern Sammich!" with scrambled egg, country ham, Pimento cheese, and sliced tomato & onion. Lunch patrons will find an equally diverse selection of choices, like a classic BLT, smoked salmon and cream cheese, the Jose with steak, sausage, grilled onions and peppers, and even healthy wraps. Look for the regular specials, which are typically the most creative items on the menu, and which are always hearty crowd pleasers. Wonderfully filling and easy to stow away for a trip to the beach, Beach Bagels is redefining how Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach breakfast and lunch fans enjoy the everyday, traditional sandwich.

Cape Fear River

Cape Fear River

While Wilmington visitors will arguably enjoy the best views of the Cape Fear River, this distinctive river actually spreads out throughout most of the coastal and piedmont regions of North Carolina, originating in the town of Haywood, just north of Greensboro, NC, and flowing all the way to the Atlantic Ocean.

Bijou Park

Bijou Park

Bijou Park is a hidden gem of a "blink and you'll miss it" attraction in Wilmington, and is a perfect spot for weary shoppers and strollers to find a quiet bench, stretch out their legs, and relax. Located in a rare gap in between downtown buildings on 225 N Front St, the park straddles the heart of Downtown Wilmington and a Riverfront parking area, but the section in between is quiet, peaceful, and buffered from the sound of the downtown traffic by the two tall but historic buildings on either side.
