There’s so much to do in Wilmington and yet only one morning left! Choose a fun activity today.
The Bellamy Mansion & The Latimer House Tours
The Bellamy Mansion is one of North Carolina’s best examples of antebellum architecture, with a thoughtfully preserved mansion, carriage house and original slave quarters. Learn the history of the Bellamy family and those of the free and enslaved black artisans who built the home on the eve of the Civil War. Next, head over to the Latimer House to admire luxurious design from the Victorian era in Wilmington. On the guided tour, we’ll step back in time to view over 600 notable artifacts.
The Battleship North Carolina
Opened as a National Memorial in 1961, the Battleship North Carolina participated in every major naval offensive in the Pacific area of operations, earning fifteen battle stars during World War II. Explore nine levels of the ship, including the mess decks, berthing areas, engine room, bridge, Combat Information Center (CIC), and much more! View the artillery, socialize in the mess decks, and even relax in a berth! Who will be the first to spot the Battleship’s resident alligator, Charlie, from the bow?
After our morning tours, enjoy an early lunch on your own along the river before we depart for home. 🅑
