Wilmington, NC

Downtown Wilmington is the economic and social hub for the region.  With boundaries spanning from the Cape Fear River to the west, Isabell Holmes Bride on the north, Memorial Bridge to the south and 5th Avenue to the east, Downtown is home to about 880 businesses, 10,800 workers and 2,100 residents. As a hospitality and tourism center, Wilmington also boasts an amazing riverwalk, hotels, convention and meeting space, museums, cultural facilities and one of the largest historic districts in the County.
