This is a very pleasant beach where you can bring the whole family. You can rent kayaks and canoes and it is never very crowded. The picnic area and the games for the kids are an extra bonus.

Wilmington Town Beach was close to our Inn. The beach area is very clean and there is a nice pavilion and park area. There is also a big parking lot. This is great for families.
