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.

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.
