Water Fun in Wilmington

Splish, splash, splosh

Living by the water has its perks, especially during the hot summer months. Cool the kids off at public pools and splash pads, or hit the waterpark for a day of fun in the sun. Walk (no running by the pool, kids) to these super fun water attractions and splash away all summer long!

Fourth of July Fun

Fireworks, Festivals, Food and Family Fun

There is nothing like the Fourth of July at the beach. Sun shining, kids playing, popsicles melting. Fireworks launch pretty late in the summer, but if your kids can stay up, there are many places to see a patriotic display.
