Be a Tourist in Your Own Hometown

This Sunday, March 6th, folks in Wilmington, NC, will have the opportunity to see their city and area as tourists do. A large number of venues are available for them, some free or at reduced price.

We all know there are a lot of Civil War sites, but some others that might be of interest are the FORT FISHER STATE RECREATION AREA which has a 4WD beach and 4 miles of undeveloped shoreline perfect for shelling.

A GHOST WALK (Hey, it's an old city and would have to have lots of ghosts.)

HANNAH BLOCK HISTORIC USO/COMMUNITY CENTER-- One of the few remaining USO building has been fully restored. It features an interesting World War II homefront museum. This Sunday, visitors can talk with World War II veterans as well as homefront workers.

HOLLYWOOD LOCATION WALK
