The Cape Fear area is known for its unique energy and laid-back nature that is the hallmark of a beach town. Moss-draped oaks and antebellum architecture recognized by the National Trust for Historic Preservation contrast with the multi-level beach vacation homes and multimillion-dollar residential developments next door. A variety of boutiques, eclectic shops, vibrant nightlife, and locally owned restaurants and pubs line the streets of the town’s historic river district.
Wilmington also has a deep history that begins during the colonial era. Not only was this port city heavily used during the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, but it was also an active port during World War II. Today, Battleship North Carolina, the ship that participated in every major naval offensive in the Pacific Theatre, is open for tours.
The area has become a popular place for film and television production due to Screen Gem Studios, one of the largest independent studios outside of California. A number of colleges and the University of North Carolina Wilmington call this area "home."
