The Battleship will be quite slippery on a rainy day....and those stairs are VERY steep!

Don't forget about Ft. Fisher....or you could head to Wilmington and see the Cape Fear Museum. I think it's interesting.

I was in Wilmington over Easter w/e and can recommend some restaurants:

Friday Lunch - Tower 7 (Wrightsville)
Friday Dinner - Port Land Grille (Lumina Station)
Saturday Lunch - South Beach Grill (Wrightsville)
Saturday Dinner - Indochine (Market Street)
Sunday Brunch - The Basics (Cotton Exchange)

Can't wait to go back to try some of the other suggested restaurants.

Thanks again,

second Britt's!!!!!
at carolina beach you MUST go to Britt's donuts , have a glass of cold milk
and half a dozen donuts. they are out of this world and can't
be had anywhere else. located on the boardwalk.

if you love icecream , squiggleys on the main drag , awesome.
both places have pattens on their machines.
Britt's has been around since 1938.


Michael's seafood has the best chowder around, voted best on the east coast.

if you can get to the state park [ parts are closed due to reworking the docks]
there are some great trails , might spot a venus flytrap plant.
there is a huge sand dune in the middle of the park.

if you are in a four wheel drive car you should really pay the fee to enter the southend at
fort fisher, 5 miles on the beach , then get out and walk towards bald head island, desolete
other than fisher men.

knowing you have a dog , she/he is allowed on that part of the beach as long as it is on a 6 ft. leash.

oh , if you love italian there is a great italian place by the pier in kure beach.
enjoy.
