Take a break from the daily grind and dive into a game of volleyball, a trivia night, or just a few rounds and a hearty meal with friends and family with a visit to Capt’n Bill’s Backyard Grill & Sports Bar. This unique destination that’s appropriate for all ages features an expansive sand volleyball court, plenty of indoor and outdoor porch-style seating, and a menu that’s just casual enough to appeal to all appetites.

The Bar and Grill is almost a secondary attraction to the massive volleyball court and entertainment complex that’s cleverly hidden along Market Street, but hungry patrons will want to take a look at the surprisingly budget-friendly and extensive menu that features a host of southern specialties. Hungry diners can dive into big fish fry platters, “finger fry” platters with yard bird and spuds, and fried seafood combo plates with shrimp, scallops, clam strips and oysters. There’s also a big array of salads, sandwiches and wraps, and even pitas to satisfy a worldlier craving, as well as a nice selection of steamed seafood, including oysters, shrimp and snow crab legs. Boasting southern cuisine, seafood, and everything in between, Capt’n Bill’s Backyard Grill & Sports Bar is a fun hang-out and place to eat, both before and after the volleyball game.

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.

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.
