Wonderful Wilmington

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.

The town of Wilmington itself has a great small-town feel about it, filled with sophistication, history, and class.”

Hollywood of the East

Wilmington has another nickname, Wilmywood, with films such as Iron Man 3, Safe Haven, and The Conjuring all featuring this beautiful city as their backdrop. It is not uncommon to spot an “A list” celebrity eating at one of the many fine-dining establishments of historic downtown. If you’re not afraid of the spotlight, head down to Screen Gem Studios to add your headshot to extras list.
