The Wilmington Riverwalk

Cross the bridge into the city and stroll along the 1.75-mile waterfront Riverwalk, an eclectic lineup of historic buildings, shops, art galleries and restaurants in Wilmington, NC. Meander through the Cotton Exchange and the 1914 Murchison Building located along the wooden walkway.
