A port city along the North Carolina coast, Wilmington’s rich history, vibrant arts scene and lovely beaches make it an interesting destination for all sorts of tourists. 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. Summer is busy, with high temperatures and room rates to match. The winter months offer a respite from both high temperatures and high prices, other than during the holiday period around Christmas. It can be chilly though, with daily highs around 55 – 65 degrees Fahrenheit, so take a wetsuit for paddle boarding or wind-surfing in the ocean.
