During our next trip to the States, we are planning to spend a few days in Wilmington and use it as a base to travel around. It is possible we will be there over the New Year period. Coming from Australia, what clothes should we need and what places of interest can anyone suggest. Our interests are quite broad.

Bring a jacket with a lining which can be removed, or layers. It can be chilly, in the 30's Farenheit, or mild in the 70's.

I would view the Battleship North Carolina. It will be off season for gardens, and chilly on the beach. I would head for Charleston, SC as the most historic area on the coast. Otherwise, what are your interests?

depending on how far you would like to travel, Ashville would be a good trip, especially to see the Biltmore around Christmas.

And definately agree with the other poster...layers is what you need, could be hot or cold.

I second Biltmore at Christmas time. I know Henrietta III does river cruises for New Years Eve. That might be something to check out.

Thanks for that. We like visiting different parts of the States. We enjoy scenery, architecture, food and enjoying the culture and dynamic of life away from the very big cities.
