Good things happen year round in Wilmington, it's true. But, April is sort of a local favorite. The Azalea Festival calls people from around the world to join in on a southern weeklong celebration like no other. And, locals wrap up in dreamy weather; the creative, productive energy that only spring can bring; and weekends and nights spent with friends and family about town, on the beach, on mini-road trips and in the garden.
