This is absolutely our favorite restaurant for date nights. With authentic Panamanian food, margaritas and guacamole that's to die for. It is a really amazing date night place but I would not recommend it for large groups as seating is limited.

Just minutes from the AirBnb the Wrightsville Beach Brewery has excellent brews and amazing oysters and pizza. They are a great choice for large groups, families, or even sitting solo at the bar. The atmosphere is lively and family friendly. They also host a farmers market in their parking lot every Saturday morning.

This is hands down our favorite local restaurant. If you have time, you have to get brunch here! The banana waffles are to die for! Another favorite is the hippy hash - a potato hash mix up with veggies and eggs. For lunch grab some Baja shrimp tacos, avocado turkey sandwich, or pulled pork BBQ sandwich.

If you know seafood, this will be your spot! Sit dockside on the intracoastal water way and enjoy the seafood chowder and the amazing selection of fresh fish and seafood. Watch the boats go by at sunset and enjoy a cold beverage. This is a local favorite with reasonable pricing and excellent views. And it's less than a mile from the Airbnb!

Sightseeing
This is probably why you are here so I don't need to say much. Go for a walk on the beach, laze in the sunshine, or walk the pier. Its crystal blue waters, fun surfing, and soft sand beaches are why we live here.

Another Wilmington Gem is the Downtown Riverwalk. Take a walk or boat tour down the Cape Fear and see historic downtown Wilmington. Also there are just so many amazing restaurants and shops that I can't mention them all. Grab Tacos at Beer Bario, Sushi at Yosaki, or out of this world pub food at The Twisted Fork. Bars and pubs abound downtown and you really can't go wrong. There is also so much history! Take a historic tour or a ghost tour and learn a little more about one of America's oldest cities. Take a day and see what there is to see!

Take a tour of this historic battleship! You will be amazed at the history and the size of this NC Battleship. This a great outing for families and you get to explore the entire ship including the decommissioned cannons. There is always so much to see on the Battleship that I recommend a full day for the visit.

Coffee & Drinks
Grab a coffee or a smoothie at the beachside Sundays Surf Cafe! One of my favorite things is to grab a coffee from Sundays and walk to the pier to watch the surfers in the early morning. I love this little cafe.
