Outside Magazine ranked Wilmington among a list of Best Towns â€“ â€œthe finest places youâ€™d ever want to call home.â€
They call the River City the â€œNext Big Thingâ€.Â Here are some of the other things they said about our community in their article in the October issue of Outside Magazineâ€¦.Â Â
â€œSimilar to Charleston: southern charm, a 300-year-old harbor, ample seafood. But what sets Wilmington (pop. 106,500) apart from its genteel South Carolina neighbor is an economy in overdriveâ€”not long ago, it was the second-fastest-growing economy in the U.S. Thanks to EUE Screen Gems, itâ€™s also home to the largest motion-picture and television studio outside California. (The local film industry employs some 800 people.) Situated where the Cape Fear River meets the Atlantic, the former military portâ€™s recreation options are mostly water-basedâ€”sea-kayaking, sailing, deap-sea fishingâ€”and the biggest party of the year is, naturally, Riverfest, a frenzy of vendors, fireworks, music, athletic competitions, and invading pirates.â€
