Big City Pleasures, Small Town Charm
Wilmington is the closest city to the Compass Pointe retirement community and offers an appealing mix of elegance, culture, and history. Take a stroll along the Cape Fear River, or window shop on Front Street, where fine restaurants abound. Catch a show at the 1,500-seat Wilson Center, which has hosted everything from Broadway shows and rock concerts to dance performances and the North Carolina and Wilmington Symphony Orchestras. Take in a locally produced show at Thalian Hall, which opened in 1858 and is one of the oldest theaters in the USA. Wilmington’s suburbs feature popular parks teeming with playgrounds, jogging paths, tennis and basketball courts, and more.
