We made the trip to Wilmington in great time, 228 miles on mostly smooth roads in 6 hours 15 minutes with a gas AND lunch stop.... Along the way we enjoyed the beautiful countryside views. We’ll be here for 5 days and there’s several things we could do here. Wilmington has a nice museum and a restored Grand Theatre, not to mention some terrific restaurants. However, once again we have some good books to read, too. So, all the options are open for us.
