Wilmington and the Cape Fear region have a lot to offer for the weekender, vacationer and locals. We have attraction to the beaches, rivers, golf, NC battleship, riverfront, parades, festivals, celebrities, fireworks, music cookouts, museums and arts, gardens, and more shopping than you can do in a life time.

We have one if you want to go boating, we have one if you want to go camping, and, if you want to invite a few friends, we have one so you can have a party. And, introducing our latest service – the county can take your car and sell it at auction, so I wouldn’t recommend driving anything you want to go back home in. The trap is set. We are waiting in ambush for you.

…I would be willing to bet a years pay that he has NO drivers license, NO car, NO boat, No high school education and NO life. I will also bet that he DOES have a lengthy list of traffic violations (that got his license revoked), a lengthy list of felonius drug related offenses (that got his car under seizure), has a mama that never cared about him and is a 3rd generation, lifetime entitlement recipient that blames his entire misfortune on others rather than his own lack of motivation and personal accountability. That’s a HUGE chip he carries around on his shoulder and the reasons for that are described above. He will likely die wearing it.
