Port City Showdown
What’s in a name? If the name is ‘Wilmington’, it’s Riverwalks. The two coastal cities of Delaware and North Carolina share a whole lot more than just a name and a scenic Riverwalk. They share street names (Front, Water, Market and Orange, to name just a few), historic downtowns and some great eats.
