Wilmington North Carolina is a spectacular place to visit.
We drove from Moyock and it took us five hours to get there, but we went the scenic route and what a fantastic way to see old America. So much history from the tobacco sheds to the old type motels. I loved it.
Meandering downtown along the historic streets and browsing the small unique shops, to walking along the front and the sumptuous golden sands of the beaches.
The individuality of each shop is a breath of fresh air from the usual large rowdy shopping malls.
There's so much to see that you most definitely need at least a week to visit them all.
Alas, we had only a few days as we were staying with my friend's son who goes to UNCW (University of North Carolina Wilmington)
It was great to have a guided tour of the school where he had already done his first year. Famous for the filming of the American teen drama Dawson’s Creek and Iron Man 3.
And off course no visit would be complete without visiting The Britts Donuts shop Located on the boardwalk at the beach in Wilmington Britts Donuts has been making these delicious sugar fantasies since 1939. The shops are basic...just one type of donut but you don't need anything else except off course a cup of coffee to wash it all down with.
Britts is only open during the tourist season so if like my friends you adore them head on out there and enjoy the sugar heaven.
