Tips from locals
USS North Carolina (BB-55) is the lead ship of the North Carolina class of fast battleships, the first vessel of the type built for the United States Navy.
In addition to being a cool destination on the Wilmington Riverfront, the Battleship holds lots of history and has a great view of downtown Wilmington.
Definitely worth going and visiting the battleship on the Cape Fear River across from downtown Wilmington.
A great way to explore history, takes a least half a day. Good for young and old.
