Giant is a unique experience for coffee and film buffs in the heart of film-obsessed Wilmington. Located next to the famed EUE Screen Gem studios, and featuring meeting rooms and an on-site movie theater that plays documentaries and arthouse films that are difficult, if not impossible, to see anywhere else, this cool coffee shop, café and all-around film buff hang-out is a unique new take on the everyday coffee shop or meeting experience.

The interior features ample quiet spaces for groups to meet and discuss film over a hot brew or two, as well as an adjacent theater that shows both locally made independent films and first-run theatrical releases. A number of workshops and classes are held on the premises due to this creative environment, and everyday visitors can enjoy the overall experience with a cup of Organic Chemex brewed coffee, vegan and organix treats, or even a fresh organix sandwich or salad that’s made with local ingredients whenever possible. Local filmmakers and industry professionals are welcome, as well as the general public, which makes it a unique spot to catch a glimpse into the minds of the local movie making scene. With good eats and plenty of community, Giant is a fine destination for visitors to enjoy a cup of coffee or snack in the heart of artful Wilmington.

Masonboro Island Coastal Estuarine Reserve

Masonboro Island Coastal Estuarine Reserve

Situated on the edge of the Cape Fear Coastline in between the bustling towns of Wrightsville Beach and Carolina Beach, the Masonboro Island Estuarine Reserve is a unique slice of undeveloped and natural barrier island shoreline that’s an important habitat for countless coastal species. Hard to reach but wonderfully isolated, visitors who make a trip to this literal deserted island will be rewarded with great shelling, beautiful landscapes, and miles of beaches to go around.
