UNC Wilmington, six miles south of Northchase, is one of Wilmington’s cultural centers. The university, well-known for its creative writing and marine science programs, hosts community wide events ranging from nationally known speakers and artists to local dramatic productions. The college is famous for serving as the high school backdrop in the long-running television show “Dawson’s Creek,” and when the school’s NCAA Division I basketball team has a good season, the whole city pulls for the Seahawks.
Wilmington’s laid-back atmosphere begins at Wrightsville Beach, a short drive from north Wilmington. Residents head to the beach for surfing, exercise, swimming, and sunbathing, enjoying the surf and sand as much as the seafood restaurants and fishing piers. Many beachgoers head over to Wrightsville Beach public park, where there are sand volleyball courts, tennis courts, and a 2.45-mile walking path.
The city hosts the North Carolina Azalea Festival every spring, drawing thousands of people to see the rainbow of flowers in full bloom and to enjoy the street festivals and parties. Nationally known singers and bands perform every night, and a female celebrity heads up the annual parade as that year’s Queen Azalea.
