Wilmington: Tour the USS North Carolina Battleship

With so many great things to do along the eastern coastline of North Carolina, it’s hard to decide where to begin.

If you’re in the mood for a little naval history, head for the Cape Fear River dock in Wilmington, NC. You won’t want to miss a tour of the famous battleship USS North Carolina.

Commissioned for fighting in World War II, this battleship is celebrating over 50 years of extensive duty serving our country. Take a tour and learn all about it on the fabulous interactive website –

Get a chance to see the guns fire or even steer the ship. This is a great history lesson for the whole family with beautiful scenery and lots of fun!

You can even have your birthday party aboard the ship. The USS North Carolina is only one of dozens of great things Wilmington, NC has to offer.

Of course, there are plenty of wonderful nearby NCBBI member bed and breakfast inns to choose from. Add your history to the sea logs with a visit to Wilmington and the USS North Carolina. For more photos and videos, check the online gallery.
