Elizabeth King Humphrey, mother of three in Wilmington, NC, of CoastalCarolinaMoms.com and TheWriteElizabeth.com, shares a great list of inexpensive and fun kid-friendly activities for summer fun in her hometown.  Thanks Elizabeth!

Beaches.  Take your pick: Wrightsville Beach, Carolina Beach or Kure Beach?

Museums.  The Children’s Museum, The Battleship, a visit to the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher, Cape Fear Museum, or maybe stop in at Wrightsville Beach Museum.

History.  Visit some sites of the American Revolution or stop in at Orton Plantation. Bellamy Mansion or Burgwin-Wright would be a treat.

Gardens.   Airlie Garden or the New Hanover Aboretum.

Riverwalk.  Stop in at the Wilmington Tea Room and wander along the river, sometimes a tall ship is moored alongside the walk.

Films. A tour at EUE/Screen Gems Studios.

ParksHugh MacRae, Greenfield Lake Park or Halyburton…any or all three are sure to entertain (and exhaust).

KayakingThe Intracoastal Waterway, as well as some of the parks offer kayak rentals.

Shopping.   Mayfaire, Historic Downtown Wilmington are just two great places for bargains and fun knick-knacks.

Festivals. June’s North Carolina Blueberry Festival is a must in Burgaw, North Carolina.   Historic Downtown Wilmington celebrates summer holidays with style, including fireworks shot from The Battleship.  Carolina Beach celebrates summer with weekly free movies and other fun events.
