One of the great things about this area, the Cape Fear Coast, is you can easily go back and forth between two entirely different experiences -- historic riverfront of Wilmington and the three beaches mentioned above. Wilmington has many tours and such. The area is home to the Battleship North Carolina, Fort Fisher Historic Site, a great state aquarium (also in Ft Fisher) and the carnivorous plant, Venus Flytrap.
For a day of family fun check out Jungle Rapids Fun Park . Jungle Rapids includes go-karts, a miniature golf course, kids jungle, arcade, rock climbing wall, laser tag, and a water park.
