Travelogue—Wilmington, NCComments : 3 Posted in : Travel Guide for Wilmington - NC on by : The Gourmez
It’s been a while since I’ve had the chance to upload photos. I finally got to some yesterday, and thus, you must now see some of my faves from that trip here. For Ben’s birthday in June we went to Wrightsville Beach, NC, which was pretty nice. The hotel we stayed at had great rooms; they were all separate apartments, essentially. It was actually fairly cheap for beach hotels in that area (read: still not cheap at all). It’s called the Sand Peddler.
That doesn’t mean I have pictures of the hotel, or the beach for that matter. Nope, all I took pictures of for that trip was of Wilmington by the Cape Fear River. We spent an afternoon there on their river walk.

As always, there are more pictures of our Wilmington afternoon at our photo website.

Hello! I truly enjoy reading your GH columns, they are so hilarious! I live in North Carolina and my Husband and I love going to Wilmington. Did you get the chance to go to Surf City or Carolina Beach? Since I know you like a great meal, I would truly suggest George’s on the Waterfront for fine dining, and Hieronymous for family style seafood. Do you live in NC? Take care and keep the great writing coming 🙂 Mashavu Gordon
Okay, sorry to double post. I just went and read the “About You” section. I live in Greensboro, NC. What a small world! I will definitely check out your other columns. Be well!
Hi Mashavu, thank you for commenting and the compliments! There’s a new EOS column up today. =) I wish I’d had your suggestions for where to eat before we took this trip—can’t say we had any fantastic meals this time. We’ve stayed at Kure Beach, Ocean Isle Beach, and on Ocracoke before, but that’s the extent of our beachside experience in NC.
