We are located in a residential neighborhood adjacent to the North Carolina Port in Wilmington. Most of the homes were built in the 1940s to accommodate those who were building the Liberty ships. There are stop lights which make for easy access in and out of the neighborhood. Suggested Local Attractions:We are 10 miles from Wrightsville Beach and 12 miles from Carolina Beach and about 18 miles from Fort Fisher and the North Carolina Aquarium. Historic downtown Wilmingron is 3 miles away. There are bike trails and walking trails throughout Wilmington. Carolina Beach State Park is 12 miles away where there is access to the Cape Fear River and plenty of trails to hike. Restaurants abound.

    This visit was a delight. Our hosts welcomed us, helped us park and then invited us to join them on their porch for wine and cheese. Great conversation and good tips for camping destinations. Nice location in a charming older neighborhood. Thank you Don and Beverly for everything!
