While Wilmington is steeped in historical charm, from cobblestone streets to horse-drawn carriages, Port City blends its Southern character with modern vibrancy, natural beauty and world-class entertainment. Enjoy courtyard shopping at the riverside Cotton Exchange, or catch an evening show in Thalian Hall - a perfectly preserved symbol of the Antebellum South. Take the helm of history on a tour of the majestic U.S.S. North Carolina or explore beautiful beaches on the North Carolina coast. Stroll through Airlie Gardens as ocean breezes stir Spanish moss-draped oak trees. At Riverview Suites, you are an pleasant walk or drive away from all of the wonderful things to do in Wilmington, NC.
