We get a lot of guests that visit Wilmington not only for our beaches, but to explore the USSS North Carolina Battleship. The Battleship greets residents and visitors alike entering Wilmington on HWY 74. 

Battleship North Carolina participated in every major naval offensive in the Pacific theater of operations during World War II, earning 15 battle stars. This authentically restored National Historic Landmark proudly serves as her State’s World War II Memorial to the 11,000+ North Carolinians who made the ultimate sacrifice.Moored across from historic downtown Wilmington, the Battleship welcomes visitors daily. It’s a must see when you’re visiting Wilmington and it’s always on our top 5 things to do when we’re asked about attractions and places we recommend.
