Heading into town from points west and across the massive Cape Fear Memorial Bridge, is inspiring thanks to dramatic views of the riverfront and state ports. The downtown area continues to grow in popularity and is a magnet for artsy types, young professionals, and hip retirees. The vast number of dining establishments, craft breweries, live music venues and funky shops provides an ever-changing backdrop of excitement! The real jewel in downtown Wilmington's crown is the Riverwalk, a 1-mile scenic boardwalk that ambles along the beautiful Cape Fear River. Downtown residents certainly have their pick of some of the area's most interesting properties, thanks to a historic district that covers 230 blocks. From high-rise lofts with water views to quiet Colonial and Victorian neighborhoods, the choices downtown are decidedly unique. The growing number of downtown housing options is especially appealing for those with ties to the pharmaceutical giant PPD and the ever-expanding campus of Cape Fear Community College-because walking to school or work is no problem!
