With its array of open spaces and miles of sandy beaches, Wilmington is the perfect city break for lovers of the outdoors and any four legged friends. You and your pet will love exploring the city’s varied outdoor areas. Parks and beaches are all a stone’s throw away from the city center, so there’s enough in Wilmington to keep you both endlessly entertained.
You and your pet definitely should not miss a stroll along Wilmington’s Riverwalk, a gorgeous boardwalk area along Cape Fear River waterfront. The spacious area boasts beautiful views and is home to an abundance of restaurants and bars. For a different feel of the city, take a stroll around the Historic District. Here you will find 230 blocks of churches, shops, museums, and gardens, all telling the story of the North Carolina city’s history.
Your dog will find paradise in nearby Halyburton Park, a gorgeous nature reserve and 1.3 mile nature trail, where there’s plenty of outdoor beauty for you to admire as well! If your furry friend is a water lover, take them over to Masonboro Island Reserve, an 8.4 mile barrier island with a range of flora and fauna. Your pet will love playing in the sands and you will have the chance to relish in coastal North Carolina’s natural beauty.
Make sure you do not leave Wilmington without enjoying the mainland’s coastline. Thanks to North Carolina’s sub tropical climate, the beaches are pleasant all year round, with Wrightsville Beach even boasting a pier and arcade. What a perfect way for you and your pet to enjoy a sunny day out!
