Enjoy Charming Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach
Located between the Atlantic Ocean and the scenic Cape Fear River, the town of Wilmington offers plenty to see and do. The Country Inn & Suites is located about halfway between downtown’s award-winning riverfront area to the east and the popular Wrightsville Beach to the west. Spend a day surfing or collecting shells on the beach, or explore the restored USS North Carolina battleship on the river. The University of North Carolina Wilmington is just three miles away from our location, and the Wilmington International Airport (ILM) is within a 10-minute drive.
