From The Lens: The City of Steeples

One of the most fascinating things I have found out about Wilmington since living here is the beauty of all the majestic churches in this area. If you are ever in Wilmington, NC I would strongly suggest you bring your camera and plan on spending a day just meandering around the downtown area. You will not be disappointed. Between the fascinating churches, well appointed historical homes and the opportunity to peek into a few private gardens…well in my opinion it just doesn't get better.

I was fortunate to take this walking tour (no guide included) during the earlier part of the summer. I would not recommend this if the weather is calling for a heat warning. In that case, check out The Dog Days of Summer: What to Do in The Cape Fear to Stay Cool blog and head over to some of those instead.

So here we go….

Spending the day wondering around, taking it all in, meeting the locals, and enjoying the sounds and wonders of downtown Wilmington is one of my favorite staycations.

Steepled Kiss,
