For a big range of sushi selections and Asian cuisine without straying too far from the University of North Carolina campus, head to Wasabi Sushi. This budget-friendly destination is within walking distance of several university housing complexes, and as a result, is a popular destination for college kids and locals alike to feast on Japanese fare without breaking the bank.

The interior is modestly-sized, but inviting, with a scattering of tables and a wooden bar overlooking a chilled counter or fresh sushi proteins. The menu is just as tempting, with a wide range of Korean dishes, teriyaki dishes, tempura dishes, and dinner bento boxes, as well as dozens of different sushi rolls that can cater to any wallet size. Sushi lovers can choose from raw or cooked rolls, spicy rolls, veggie rolls, roe sushi, and house gourmet or specialty rolls, as well as a selection of “add-ons” to personalize any of the vast selections. Newcomers will want to start with one of the special rolls for something a little different, like the Sunday Morning roll with deep-fried salmon, cream cheese, and tamago. Colorful, distinctive, and chock-full of options, Wasabi Sushi will be a local sushi joint that adventurous Asian cuisine fans will want to return to again and again.

Wrightsville Beach Museum of History

Wrightsville Beach Museum of History

The small but well-stocked Wrightsville Beach Museum of History is a charming little attraction that may not take very long to explore, but nevertheless presents a complete and fascinating portrait of this surprisingly long-standing beach town.

Burgwin-Wright House Museum and Gardens

Burgwin-Wright House Museum and Gardens

The Burgwin-Wright Museum House may be one of many former Wilmington residences that claim historical significance and a long and storied history, but this home is remarkably beautiful and distinctive in its own right. Built in 1770-1771, the home is one of the top twenty oldest homes in North Carolina, and the oldest museum house in the state. Carefully preserved throughout the centuries, despite natural deterioration, military occupancy, and the Civil War, the Burgwin-Wright house is an enchanting step back in time for Wilmington visitors and residents alike.
