PinPoint Restaurant is a chic little downtown restaurant with a big reputation as the perfect destination for a romantic Wilmington date night. Featuring a relatively seasonal menu that showcases local ingredients at every opportunity, the colorful dishes and cool near-the-water atmosphere is sure to charm Cape Fear visitors.

The menu changes regularly, which ensures that the ingredients of the season will have a starring role, and that every visit may be a different experience from the previous one.  Divided into appetizers & shares, soups and salads, “Eat Your Veggies” sides for the table, hearty mains and desserts, it’s an easy feat to enjoy a full and multi-course dinner. Sample entrees can include delicate creations like local grouper with roasted maitake mushrooms, parsnip purée, seared greens, and Meyer lemon, or grilled Berkshire pork chop with chestnut purée, sage sweet potatoes, and green beans, although every day may have a new fresh selection. Brunch is also available on the weekends, which can include well-cooked eggs to order, or more refined dishes like the house charcuterie or the Brioche French Toast.

Always slightly elevated and refined, even when it comes to the classics like burgers and steak and eggs, PinPoint Restaurant is a fine departure from the traditional lunch and dinner scene.

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.

Freeman Park

Freeman Park

The northernmost coastal region of Carolina Beach is home to the Freeman Park Recreation Area, a stretch of shoreline that is well known to adventurous, beach-loving 4WD truck owners. Unlike other stretches of the barrier islands off the coast of Wilmington, this park is special because it is completely undeveloped, and allows beach driving to off-roaders who like to cruise along the sand.
