I can't say much about the nightlife since we travel with a toddler and don't get the chance to enjoy that type of thing. But I know that the Ocean grill has live music and is rumored to also have great drinks. We've listened to the music from the beach but never been in to try the drinks or food. The Front Street Brewery in downtown Wilmington is great. We went earlier in the day so I can't say anything about the nighttime atmosphere.

I would also highly recomend the Little Dipper fondue restaurant in downtown Wilmington. We'd never tried fondue until out first trip to the CB area, but we are hooked now and always make sure to eat there at least once per trip. They have a great deck where you can order from a menu a la carte but you guys could take advantage of the full menu inside for a nice romantic dinner. Fort Fisher is also a nice area to see, they have the park where you can have a picnic, the aquarium and the cicil war sites. We also loved the ferry over to Southport from the end of Fort Fisher and seeing the Orton planatation was great.

As far as the rentals, I'm not sure. I've seen people parasailing and riding jet skis and canoes. I can't say what else the . But you guys might want to check out one of the canoe tours that leave from Wrightsville beach. They take you up Hewlett's creek which is also a very beautiful area.
