Nothing is more relaxing and liberating than a big belly laugh, and Wilmington’s own Dead Crow Comedy Room is a perfectly convenient destination for Cape Fear visitors to sit back, enjoy a drink, and let loose with some of the region’s, and even the country’s, most talented comedians.

The comedy club is located in the heart of Downtown Wilmington just a block or so away from the waterfront along Front Street, and is unmistakable for its vibrant pink and black exterior which makes it stand out in the crowd of neighboring historic buildings. Once inside, however, the dark comedy club resembles any underground comedy club in New York City, with a brick-lined stage and a collection of small tables and seats where patrons can enjoy an up-close view. The Dead Crow Comedy Room also has a full drink and munchie menu, which features everything from Angus burgers to pizza tacos, although patrons won’t want to eat too much for fear of busting a gut during the show. With plenty of local talent as well as big names like Jen Murphy or Alonzo Boden, visitors to Downtown Wilmington can enjoy some world-class laughs without ever venturing too far from the heart of the Port City.

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.
