Wilmington is the principal city of the Wilmington Metropolitan Statistical Area, a metropolitan area that includes New Hanover and Pender counties in southeastern North Carolina and it has a population of 263,429 as of the 2012 Census. It is a Southern destination, with something for everyone and it is a vibrant riverfront city, with a timeless character, that has preserved its historic places, while fostering an ever-evolving independent spirit.

Explore the city’s National Register Historic District, which spans 230-plus blocks of churches, classic architecture, moss-draped oaks, brick-lined streets and antebellum homes. Visit Airlie Gardens or stroll along the pedestrian-friendly Riverwalk, lined with shops and cafes, or the Port City Marina. Then, hop aboard a water taxi to the famous World War II Battleship, the USS North Carolina, or take a scenic cruise or a sightseeing tour.

Wilmington is also the home of EUE Screen Gems Studios, the largest domestic television and movie production facility outside of California, where you can find the “Dream Stage 10”, the newest sound stage and third largest in the US. So, you will never be bored exploring North Carolina’s most accessible coastal city destination. All you need is somewhere to lay your head after taking in the sights, and we have you covered here as well, with this list of top Vrbo accommodations in Wilmington, NC.
