In October, the city is excited to host the inaugural 2016 PPD IRONMAN North Carolina in Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach. More than 54 parks and gardens offer ftness trails, including the Wilmington Riverwalk and the Gary Shell Cross-City Trail —a 15- mile off-road, multi-use trail that stretches from the river to the sea. "The Cape Fear river is the defning element of Wilmington's landscape," said resident Jason Frye. "A constant thread through the history of the city and the region, the river is a wonder, but so many people never explore it. Take a tour with Wilmington Water Tours to see wildlife like deer, osprey, bald eagles, and other birds, and get the opportunity to see the city and countryside from a vantage that most never see."
