Downtown Wilmington is known for its eclectic collection of restaurants that combine southern sensibilities with modern cuisine, and the Flying Pi Kitchen is no exception. Located along an unimposing corner of the downtown area, and in a nondescript, one-story brick building, this chic breakfast and lunch destination boasts a world of flavor and a creative spin on the classics.

Flying Pi Kitchen has a hefty dose of local fresh ingredients that are infused with time-tested favorites for both breakfast and lunch. Early birds will find a decadent breakfast menu that features traditional southern breakfasts, like biscuits and gravy, that are available hand-in-hand with healthier options, like the steal cut oatmeal and Flying Pi Breakfast Parfait with house made granola, fruit, and Greek yogurt. The lunchtime menu is an equally intriguing mix of old and new, with unique seasonal dishes like butternut squash enchiladas partnered with classic lunchtime fare like a BLT, a Cobb salad, or an elevated Tuna Salad with scallions, celery, dill, lemon and just a touch of mayo

Always refreshing, and a popular destination for the working Wilmington crowd, the often overlooked Flying Pi Kitchen is worth a visit for its use of local vendors alone. Dive into a hearty breakfast or lunchtime sandwich, and discover the heart of Wilmington’s creative cuisine attitude.

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.

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.
