When you’re this close to the coast, and in a city that’s as creative as Wilmington, it’s easy to find restaurants that take new twists with traditional seafood, and Umaii is no exception. This sushi bar and restaurant which specializes in Thai cuisine has a bold and flavorful menu that features all the sushi and Thai staples, but also serves up more unique creations that can’t be found anywhere else in the Porters Neck area.

Seafood lovers will clearly want to start with the Sushi and Sashimi menu, which features a large selection of raw rolls, cooked rolls, hand rolls, and nice big samplers for a crowd. There are dozens of rolls to choose from, but seafood lovers will want to check out the Crazy Roll, with white tuna, spicy tuna, yellowtail, shrimp, red snapper, crab and avocado, or the ONE roll, which simply has too many ingredients to list. The Thai-centric lunch and dinner menus are equally varied, and feature a delectable selection of traditional appetizers, soups, salads, entrees, and specialty dishes like Hawaii Shrimp or crispy red snapper with a spicy chili lemongrass sauce. By combining the best of both worlds, global cuisine and Cape Fear seafood, Umaii takes coastal fare to new and inspired heights.

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.
