The best times to visit Wilmington are in March – May, when temperatures are comfortable at 65 – 85 degrees Fahrenheit and accommodation and flights haven’t reached their summer peak. September – November is another great time to visit, after the summer crowds have gone home, and with daily high temperatures in the range of 68 – 85 degrees Fahrenheit, you’ll be sure to enjoy events like the Pleasure Island Seafood, Jazz and Blues Festival and the Cape Fear Kite Festival.
