Juggling Gypsy Café is a completely original destination where food, drinks, live music, a hookah bar, and even belly dancing can all be found. A popular hang-out with the college crowd, and a fun late-night destination for laid-back yet cultured individuals of all ages and tastes, Juggling Gypsy Café is a completely unique icon in Downtown Wilmington’s food and drink scene.

The small café is found on the edge of the downtown area in an unmistakable maroon and blue building with global artwork and designs. The interior is dark and cluttered, but cozy, with a collection of hodge-podge tables and couches for patrons who want to gather around the hookah or a round of cold beers. (There are 150 varieties of beer to choose from, too.) The café menu is a collection of global cuisine, which includes hummus, wraps, quesadillas, and a big array of gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, like the classic with cheddar, bacon, and tomato, or the Philly with sautéed peppers and onions, and creamy horseradish sauce. With a regular line-up of local acoustic artists, bands, and even live belly dancing, Juggling Gypsy Café is where Wilmington’s hip young and young-at-heart crowd go to dive into a completely eclectic Happy Hour, munchie, or late night experience.

Wrightsville Beach Park

Wrightsville Beach Park

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. Adjacent to the Wrightsville Beach Parks & Recreation's main facilities, the Wrightsville Beach Arboretum, and plenty of wide open green spaces, this park is a perfect spot for enjoying a little free fun in the sun, without the risk of getting sand in the shoes.

Wilmington Riverwalk

Wilmington Riverwalk

The Riverwalk in Downtown Wilmington is a showstopper of a stroll that is a distinctive attraction all its own. Originally conceived in the 1980s as a way to generate more interest and tourism to the Cape Fear River waterfront regions of Wilmington's historic Downtown, today the Riverwalk encompasses a full mile of scenic boardwalk, hugging the borders of the riverfront, and providing visitors with endless views and easy access to some of the Downtown's most beloved attractions.
