A weekend at the beach is one of summer’s rites of passage. And the town of Wilmington, North Carolina, has so much more to offer than just the sand and surf. If you’ll be getting away to this quaint beach town this summer, here are a few activities to consider.  

The Riverwalk

Anyone who has been to Wilmington is familiar with the Riverwalk. The mile-long stretch of riverfront boardwalk is where the peaceful views of the Cape Fear River border visitors on one side while boutique shopping and dining encompass the other.

The streets surrounding the boardwalk are tight and the parking can be even cozier, giving the drivers in something like a Buick Cascada a considerable advantage. You’ll find the Buick Cascada for sale near Wilmington.  

Jungle Rapids Family Fun Park

If you need to cool off from the summer heat, there’s no better place in Wilmington than Jungle Rapids. The water park portion of this amusement park features a lazy river, wave pool, and waterslides that are sure to provide relief along with a splash of fun.

Of course, the kids and all their friends will want to tag along, so plan on making the trip in something like the GMC Yukon, which offers an eight-person seating capacity. And conveniently, the 2018 GMC Yukon is for sale near Wilmington.

Carolina Beach Family Campground

Summertime is camping season and the Carolina Beach Family Campground features a pool, laundry, general store, and more, all within walking distance of the Cape Fear River.

It always helps to have a pickup truck when camping and the bed of the 2018 GMC Canyon is the perfect place for tents, chairs, fishing poles, and other camping gear. And Moore Buick GMC near Wilmington is the perfect place to see the 2018 GMC Canyon for sale.

National Register Historic District

History buffs love Wilmington, and for good reason: The town’s National Register Historic District is 230 square blocks of antebellum homes, brick-lined streets, and classic architecture consisting of homes, churches, gardens, and more.

You can take it in on a walking tour, segway tour, or even a horse-drawn carriage. But better yet, you can bask in the historic sights from the comfort of the Buick Enclave, with spacious seating for seven, dual power moonroofs, and Buick’s QuietTuning technology, which keeps the peace by eliminating outside noise. Take a tour of the 2018 Buick Enclave for sale near Wilmington.
