In addition to the cultural, business and recreational opportunities which abound in Wilmington, one should not overlook the numerous restful and restorative settings for reconnecting with nature, and one’s own spirit, on a lazy summer afternoon!
There is no shortage of activities going on in and around Wilmington, especially in the summer. There seems to be a festival every weekend, and a movie theater, bowling alley or restaurant on every corner. While having so many commodities and leisure activities nearby is definitely a positive, let’s not forget all of the natural wonders the Cape Fear region has to offer too.
The most obvious way to connect with nature is to spend a sunny afternoon on a local beach. Lying on the sand while taking in the sounds of the waves and sea birds is a great way to take in nature. Kayaking one of the many local creeks, rivers and marshes is also a relaxing activity.
Strolling through a park allows for reflection, as you view local plants and animals. Many parks offer bird watching or nature exploration programs. With 35 public parks in the city of Wilmington, it will take you a while to explore them all! You can visit the City of Wilmington’s list of public parks here: List of city parks.
With so much to do in such a small area, it’s easy to feel like you’re always on the go. But, don’t forget the wonderful, natural features Wilmington has to offer – and take the time to enjoy them too!
