Beer lovers will be thrilled to discover that there’s a local Wilmington tour designed just for them – the Port City Brew Bus. Open to visitors who are 21 and older, this tour bus heads to three of the area’s top breweries where patrons can enjoy a tour, see what’s on tap, and of course, sample a flight or two (or three) of some of the Cape Fear region’s homegrown brews.

The tour is led by an experienced craft beer expert, who works hand in hand with each of the breweries to introduce the beers to tour-goers. Patrons will learn all about the brewery process before, during and after each stop, and will enjoy plenty of hefty samples along the way. Pretzels, water and snacks are available en route to whet a beer appetite, and multiple stops are made both along the downtown area and in central Wilmington along Market Street and Oleander Drive. Private tours and special events can be scheduled as well, ensuring larger brew-loving parties can be accommodated. For a happy tour of Wilmington that’s filled with flavor and good times, beer lovers will want to plan a long afternoon onboard the educational but perfectly fun Port City Brew Bus.

Wrightsville Beach Vacation Rentals

Wrightsville Beach Vacation Rentals

While Wrightsville Beach has a collection of hotels and motels, the primary type of accommodations in this region are vacation rentals. There are literally hundreds of vacation rentals in the town of Wrightsville Beach, which are scattered throughout the landscape and are found along the oceanfront, soundfront, and in between waterfront regions in the interior section of the island. Because of the sheer geography of this skinny barrier island, guests in vacation rentals will never be far from the town’s top attractions, which include the local beaches, the waterfront boasting, fishing, and paddling scenes, and the variety of shops and restaurants that are found throughout the area.

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.
