In Wilmington's historic river district you will have the wonderful opportunity to relax after a nice stroll, right on the seashore, where it will be quite difficult to choose the perfect place to eat, especially  as there are over 40 restaurants and pubs serving fresh sea food as well as tasty local specialties. You will feel downright lucky to find out that in the majority of them, the music sounds loud enough even after the sun goes down. Do not forget to walk along the river in the evening, being the ideal opportunity to enjoy such romantic scenery. Airlie Gardens are filled with so much beauty in every corner. Decorated with thousands of azaleas and tulips, are the home of the wonderful turtles and swans sitting undisturbed in the sun. Everything is blooming, so bring your comfortable shoes, as you will walk enough, plus a book and a camera to capture the paradisiacal landscape.
