Visit Coastal NC & Check Out NC Wilmington

College grads

Explore Wilmington and the campus of UNCW

Any trek into North Carolina will no doubt yield a wealth of fun, excitement, and long lasting memories. While there are major tourism hot spots all across the state, your next visit to NC should see you exploring the coastal region.

Cities like Swansboro and New Bern attract thousands every year who seek aquatic adventures on the Atlantic Ocean. But there's plenty more to see.

Plan on heading for Wilmington and explore the area in and around the University of North Carolina - Wilmington.

UNC Wilmington, sometimes also referred to as UNCW, is a public university established in 1947. Another member of the University of North Carolina System, UNCW is just east of downtown Wilmington and a short drive from Leland.

When you stay in Wilmington be sure to visit the Battleship North Carolina, a relic from WWII and currently a museum offering self-guided tours. You might fly into Wilmington, mostly likely, landing at the Wilmington International Airport.

During the spring and into the summer, enjoy a pleasant UNCW campus tour, then make your way to Legion Stadium, home of the Wilmington Hammerheads – an excellent example of the United States Soccer League.

Continue your spring or summer visit to Wilmington with a round of golf at the Wilmington Municipal Golf Course – 18 holes of pristine, championship level golf.

During your UNCW campus tour, be sure to visit the Lumina Theater which screens popular and independent films most of the year. You can also check out a slew of impressive sports – UNCW fields 19 varsity teams and are known as the Seahawks.

The UNCW baseball team plays home games at Brooks Field, the soccer team plays home matches at the UNCW Soccer Stadium, and the men's and women's basketball teams play home games at the Trask Coliseum.

No matter when you decide to visit the coast of NC and stay in Wilmington, you'll find a wealth of memorable things to do and see. Be sure to enjoy your time and soak in the pleasant accommodations.
