‘Tis the Season to Shop, Dine and Entertain!

Posted Nov 19th, 2018 in Feat of the Week


Downtown Wilmington is the place to be for shopping, dining and entertaining this holiday season. It is also the perfect place to take in a show, visit an attraction and socialize with friends.

As Downtown has so much to offer, we wanted to help you find your way around and explore new places so we created a pocket-sized, Shopping, Dining and Entertainment Guide. This Guide is available in the Wilmington Downtown Inc. office at 221 N. Front Street and in many locations around the central business district. You can also get a copy from one of the Municipal Service District Ambassadors who can be identified by their bright orange shirts emblazoned with the word, “Ambassador.”

The Ambassadors can help you find a great place to eat at one of the many dining establishments downtown and can point out where shops, entertainment venues, museums and points of interest are located. They can also show you the best places to park and will encourage you to take advantage of the free, first hour of parking in the City and County parking decks. The parking decks and City-owned, surface lots are clearly marked on the map, which is on the reverse side of the guide.

Other features of the guide include banks, medical services, grocery and convenience stores, lodging and galleries.  A list of hair salons and spas are also included so you can unwind after your holiday shopping and pamper yourself ahead of your holiday entertainment.

Explore everything Downtown Wilmington has to offer this holiday season with the help of our Shopping, Dining and Entertainment Guide. Enjoy!

To get your copy of the Guide, call or email an Ambassador.

They can be reached during operating hours by phone or text at 910.524.3600.
