Visitors and Wilmington locals on the hunt for a convenient and all-encompassing destination for pizza and Italian fare can call on Uncle Louie’s Pizza Lounge. This slightly upscale but still casual pizza parlor is the perfect spot to enjoy a cold drink and an appetizer, a big floppy pizza pie with friends, or a big Italian feast to enjoy in the comfort of home. Located on College Street, and close to a collection of stores and services, Uncle Louie’s is a great place to take a break from the daily grind, and cure a ravenous appetite.

While the pizzas are certainly tasty, and are available both by the slice and in small, medium or large sizes, longtime patrons attest that the entrees are what steal the spotlight. Pasta dishes include a collection of tasty raviolis, (like lobster ravioli, portabella mushroom ravioli, and shrimp and garlic ravioli), baked pasta classics like lasagna and stuffed shells, and traditional spaghetti, penne and fettucine with clam sauce, alfredo, meat sauce, or vodka sauce. There’s also a host of specialties, like chicken or veal Marsala, Francese, or parmesan, and a wide range of subs, like cheese steaks, meatball parm, and the unique pepper and eggs. All filling, and all available for take-out and dine-in patrons alike, Italian food fans will find all the favorites with a visit to Uncle Louie’s Pizza Lounge.

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.

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.
