The Destination One of the best-preserved colonial cities in the country, Wilmington, North Carolina, paints a classic portrait of the Deep South, with antebellum as well as Victorian architecture lending a cinematic backdrop to this port city—it's no coincidence that so many movies have been filmed here. In addition to its historic district, one of the largest on the National Register of Historic Places, Wilmington offers plenty of other reasons to visit: Golf, fishing, riverboat tours, and some of the best beaches in the state are just a few of the draws here.
