That would definitely make more sense..... but that isn't what she asked.

One would think that living in Wilmington, one would already know that..... but maybe not.

I figured most adults were capable of making this walk in under 10 minutes. I'm done offering alternatives to the OP, especially since she hasn't even responded after her initial inquiry.

I also agree, if you are driving from ILM to Ft. Fisher, why not just take the car on the ferry to Southport?

Just drive to Southport and ditch the ferry idea. If you have to drive to the ferry, you might as well just drive to Southport.

In terms of restaurants...there are a few right on the water...Provision Company and Fishy Fishy are right next to each other...

Provision Company - Southport Waterfront Restaurant

Fishy Fishy Cafe

There used to be an inexpensive Thai restaurant that is very unassuming, but the food was pretty good.

I would recommend Fishy Fishy or Thai Peppers. I have been to both and they are really good. Fishy Fishy is on the water, and offers outdoor seating. If the weather is nice, definitely sit on their deck. If you like Thai food, Thai Peppers is really good. It is in Historic Southport, on E. Moore Street (one of the main streets in Southport). I've heard great things about Provision Company, though I have never been there myself.

Its about a mile, so the answer depends on whether or not you're willing/able to walk that far. Its certainly an easy bike ride.

If you are driving to the ferry dock at Ft. fisher, you should just take the car on the ferry. It is so easy to get around in Southport and then you can just park and walk all you want.

connie, you'd probably be better off starting a new thread. People will see the OP's original question and continue to answer that.

I'd recommend taking a car or bike on the Southport ferry.
