On the cusp of a new decade, the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge is completed in Wilmington. The modern bridge is an icon of the fast-growing city, a connection to the rest of the state, and a promise of big things to come.
Set up your umbrella for a day of sun and fun in Wrightsville Beach or stroll cobblestone streets and eat at stylish restaurants along the Cape Fear River in Wilmington — or do both! You can have it all in these neighboring coastal towns.
Treasured treats from beloved grandmothers, simple-but-delicious recipes that have been passed down for generations, and an almond biscotti that tastes like Italy — these are a few of our favorite holiday treats.
