Wilmington’s Midtown is an established district of our city that continues to grow in popularity.
Midtown consists largely of residential neighborhoods, many of which are long-standing. In recent years, the area has seen an upsurge of growth, with new construction neighborhoods, restaurants, shopping, medical offices, and professional services emerging throughout. The Pointe at Barclay – Midtown’s entertainment destination with dining, shopping, a movie theater, medical offices, and more – is a testament to the area’s growth.
Midtown’s status as a thriving district is primarily due to its desirable, central location: It is strategically positioned between both county beaches and only ten minutes from Historic Downtown Wilmington. New Hanover Regional Medical Center and the re-developed Independence Mall are also equally accessible. Furthermore, numerous pharmacies and grocery stores are dispersed throughout the area.
Recreational, natural, and cultural attractions are also abundant in the area. Trails End Park includes a public boat ramp with access to the Intracoastal Waterway, and some neighborhoods – such as Helms Port and Masonboro Harbour – enjoy private water access and neighborhood marinas. Furthermore, the Cameron Art Museum, a resource for art exhibitions, classes, and cultural events, is centrally located. Both Pine Valley Country Club and the Wilmington Municipal Golf Course are also nearby.
