Blue Asia is a chic and cool little Japanese and sushi joint that is just a stone’s throw from the University of North Carolina Wilmington Campus, and therefore attracts a crowd of hungry college students and Japanese and Asian cuisine lovers alike.

Super hungry patrons will want to swing by Blue Asia for the daily buffet, which is an ever-changing showcase of soups and salads, tempura, and easily more than 20 sushi rolls which are all available at a diner’s fingertips. (There are also a variety of kitchen specialties available on a regular basis, like Teriyaki chicken, Bang Bang chicken, and sweet and sour chicken.) While the huge sushi buffet is a good place to start, patrons who want to sit down and enjoy a full meal will be impressed by the far-reaching menu, which features an assortment of hibachi dishes, soups, salads, and tempting appetizers like edamame and Yum Yum shrimp, in addition to a selection of sushi rolls. All of the dishes are nicely priced, and budget-conscious patrons will have no trouble feasting on a variety of rolls and smaller bites without breaking the bank. Friendly, centrally located, and an inexpensive destination for both students and foodies, Blue Asian allows everyone to sample the best flavors of Japanese and Asian cuisine.

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.

Henrietta III

Henrietta III

It's hard to miss the Henrietta III as she cruises along Downtown Wilmingtontowards the open waters of the Cape Fear River. As the largest cruise boat in North Carolina, and the state's only true stern wheel riverboat, the Henrietta III has become a staple of the downtown scene in Wilmington, adding to its historic charm and southern flair for fun.
