What Bert Has To Say About Wilmington Metro Area

Wilmington is an old Colonial port city known for shipping, agricultural processing, and flowers. The historic town center and waterfront along the Cape Fear River is interesting and attractive. Due to its historic interest and its location on a peninsula formed by the Cape Fear River on the west and the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway on the east, housing costs and cost of living tend to be higher than other small North Carolina cities.
