Joseph’s Italian Restaurant

Located onsite at the marina and overlooking the gorgeous Intracoastal Waterway, Joseph’s is an ideal spot for enjoying delicious Italian cuisine with the family. Order a round of steamed mussels or clams for the table, then tuck into classics like eggplant parmigiana, shrimp scampi, veal marsala, or chicken piccata. Joseph’s also has an impressive wine selection to make any occasion feel special. Private rooms are available for larger parties by reservation.

Rusty Hooks Dockside Grill

If you’re looking to grab a great bite to eat close by, head straight to Rusty Hooks Dockside Grill, located onsite at the marina. This cozy eatery features expansive views of the water and an excellent selection of fresh local seafood. The Maryland-style crab cakes are a popular pick here, but so are the blackened Mahi tacos, jerked chicken, fish and chips, and cream of crab soup. Make sure to check out the daily drink specials, with a full selection of draft beer, wine, and cocktails.

Downtown Wilmington

Known far and wide as the town where “history and culture meet newness and excitement,” Wilmington, NC is a thriving locale with something to offer for everyone. Stroll through the historic district for a rare glimpse of carefully preserved 18th and 19th-century architecture, antebellum residences, and the Spanish-baroque style Basilica Shrine at St. Mary’s. The Riverwalk runs parallel to the Cape Fear River and is the home of microbreweries, fantastic restaurants, and exceptional shopping.

Oak Island Lighthouse

Completed in 1958, Oak Island Lighthouse was the final lighthouse built on the North Carolina coast. Its style is unique compared to the other local lighthouses, many of which were erected more than a hundred years earlier. Instead of a spiral staircase that winds to the top, Oak Island’s lighthouse is accessed through a series of ladders. Limited tours are available fairly regularly, but if you wish to see the view from the top level of the lighthouse, advanced reservations are required. Be sure to check the current hours of operation when making your plans.

Bald Head Island

The southernmost of North Carolina’s cape islands, Bald Head Island is a pleasant 20-minute ferry ride from the terminal at Deep Point Marina to the island harbor. Of the 12,000 acres of beach, marsh, and maritime forest that comprise the island, 10,000 remain undeveloped, preserving the gorgeous natural setting for all to enjoy. Popular recreational activities include kayaking, hiking, paddleboarding, kiteboarding, fishing, sailing, and golfing. For a bit of local history, pay a visit to Old Baldy, the site of the state’s oldest standing lighthouse, built in 1817. With a variety of spas, clubs, shopping, and rental properties, this charming coastal gem is a great spot for a weekend getaway or family vacation.

Dutchman Creek Park

Just a short walk from the marina, this lovely 30-acre park off of Fish Factory Road is a quiet place to enjoy a morning or afternoon outdoors. Hiking, fishing, and picnicking are popular activities here, and there’s a playground to keep the kids busy. Public washrooms and parking are available for your convenience.
