Pleasure Island and Wilmington Area Information
During the summer, between Memorial Day and Labor Day, enjoy the Amusement rides on the boardwalk, with different forms of entertainment everynight at the always happening Boardwalk! Enjoy free fireworks every Thursday night at the boardwalk and a free outdoor movie at our Lake every Sunday night! Our lake is 9 acres, has ducks, a brick walking path, paddle boats, picnic tables and a children's play area. Our little lake is listed in the Guiness Book of Records as the largest freshwater lake closest to the ocean. It is just across the street from the ocean!
Be sure to get a Famous and delicious Britt's Donut ( or several! ) while visiting our boardwalk. Britt's has been voted the #2 donut in America and we can't believe there are any better! And check out the various restaurants-Frank's Pizza (watch 'em being tossed!), and specialty shops. Also enjoy Karaoke and shagging, face painting, puppet shows, putt-putt, snow cones, arcade, bouncy house and more!
Modern and historic, New Hanover County offers the best of yesterday and today. From the award-winning beaches and marinas of Wrightsville, Carolina Beach, and Kure Beach to hundreds of hospitalities, retail, and dining choices; there is something for everyone.
