Spend a romantic evening out in the heart of Downtown Wilmington with a visit to The Little Dipper. This charming fondue restaurant features heaping plates of veggies, breads, meats, and desserts that can be dipped into warm pots of gooey goodness.

The Little Dipper has a perfectly central location that’s just a stone’s throw from the Cape Fear River along Front Street, and is therefore a perfectly convenient destination for Downtown Wilmington visitors. Once you’ve arrived at the cozy restaurant, the dining experience begins on a handmade table with at least one shared burner at the center. Then it’s on to a full range of courses that utilize a nice variety of the Little Dipper’s 17 different homemade dipping sauces, and an even bigger variety of fare to dip into the warm pot. The Little Dipper is set up with a three-course menu that includes an appetizer, a main entrée with proteins and veggies, and a dessert with tasty items like strawberries and marshmallows, although some dips can also be ordered a la carte for lighter appetites.

Always an engaging experience from start to finish, The Little Dipper will make any Fondue newcomer a devout and loyal fan of this vintage but surprisingly elevated cuisine.

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.

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.
