Wilmington marches to its own beat, always. And, March in Wilmington is a primary example.

 

Around here, March is full of fun surprises. You could be in your bathing suit on the beach one day, and the next be surrounded by snow flurries (very rare - but, it happens). It's that awesome month when the excitement of spring bubbles just below the surface of everything while occasional reminders that we, too, have four seasons make us fall in love with where we live all over again.

 

March is a happening month in Wilmington, culturally and otherwise. So, plan to get out on the town to get in on all of the good pre-spring energy around here.
