What do you think of when you hear: “Port City” or “Wilmington?”

When most people think of the Port City or Wilmington they think of oceans, beaches, and fun in the sun.  Did you know that Wilmington is also a blossoming cultural arts,  film production, and epicurean destination?

  • Wilmington's Art Council at the Cameron Art Museum curates world-class exhibits such as: Mary Cassat, Ando Hiroshige, Saul Steinberg, Phillip Guston, Leonard Baskin and Robert Gwathmey to name a few. This 42,000 sq. ft facility boasts ever changing exhibitions and is certainly a great cultural gathering place for arts education.

  • Wilmington is often monikered as the “Hollywood of the East.”  Anchored by EUE/Screen Gems Studios, Wilmington has hosted many television and box office hits such as Dawson's Creek, One Tree Hill, Battleship, and currently in Production, Iron Man 3.  EUE/Screen Gems North Carolina sits on a 50 acre complex with 10 sound stages and 2 special effects water tanks.

  • With the increase of cultural arts and film production, its only natural that the Port City would also become an epicurean hub.  Fresh food, a pinch of international flavor and Southern charm makes Wilmington dining a treat for taste buds.  We offer River front dining, traditional spreads, and porches & patios full of entertainment and libations to name a few.
