Here are 6 reasons to love studying at UNCW and Cape Fear!

Beach please

No seriously, this is the best part about living in Wilmington! Unlike other seaside towns, Wilmington doesn’t get overcrowded often. Street parking is ample, food is of the surplus, and there will always be space for you in the sand.

Explore the outdoors

Whether you’re going to grab a drink with friends at Front Street Brewery, test your balance at Wrightsville SUP, or just grab an ice cream cone at Bruster’s real ice-cream. If you walk just a few blocks around Downtown Wilmington you will quickly see that this city believes life should be lived outdoors!

Get anywhere from here

Wilmington is also home to Wilmington International Airport and flies directly to many of the major hub spot airports such as New York and Charlotte! When Wilmington is home, wherever you need to go, is just a flight away.

Heartfelt Brews

Wilmington is home to Bitty & Beau’s a coffee shop; a place that true joy lives. Bitty & Beau’s is a coffee shop that is run by adults with intellectual and developmental disability. From the moment you walk through these coffee shop doors, you will see why it is more than just a cup of coffee.

Dolphin watching

Looking to see some wildlife without going for from home? When you live in Wilmington, the exotic dolphin scene you’ve always wanted to witness, is in your own backyard! Catch a ride on the Wilmington Water Tours and set out to see everything that is jumping along the Wilmington coast line.

Azalea Festival

Azalea Festival is the largest festival of it’s kind in the state of North Carolina! Thousands gather and admire the local art and culture at the beginning of every Spring. Packed out with live music, food trucks, great venue booths, and flowers! You won’t want to miss out on Wilmington’s official send off to Spring!
