6th On The Park
Accommodations: 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath (Sleeps 2 - 7)
Sixth on the Park is just north of Market Street across from Bicentennial Park - stroll to the Riverwalk! Built in 1996 and fully refurnished in early 2014, enjoy the comfort of recent construction while in the midst of historic homes from the late 1800s and early 1900s. The house has plenty of outdoor living space: a fenced in garden, a screened back porch and a welcoming sitting porch out front for greeting the neighbors out walking their dogs (pets are welcome upon approval). Inside, Sixth on the Park features queen beds in the front and back bedrooms and a bunk bed that sleeps three in the middle bedroom (double bottom, single top).
Extremely close to Thalian Hall and only 6 blocks from the river boardwalk, you can easily walk to everything that makes downtown the place to be: casual to fine dining, hip coffee houses, museums, art galleries, antique shops, the excellent county library, horse drawn carriage rides, Shops of Old Wilmington or the Cotton Exchange, historic tours, Ghosts of Wilmington Tour, haunted pub crawls, Wilmington’s Farmer’s Market (April – December), the Azalea Festival (April), Riverfest (October), the Brooklyn Arts Center, the NC Battleship (take a ferry from Water St.), PPD, Cape Fear Community College, and the new convention center.
Experience the night life and then walk back to the house for the quiet of our comfortable home. If you have a car, there is one private parking spot at the end of the driveway and an abundance of free on-street parking. Wrightsville beach is approximately a 15 minute car ride from the house with Carolina Beach, Kure Beach and Ft. Fisher (home to the NC Aquarium) being 30-45 minutes away. The city offers many spots for children: Fit for Fun on 10th Street(ages 6 mo. to 5 yrs.), The Children's Museum located downtown on 2nd and Orange (ages 2 to 10ish), Monkey Joe's, Jungle Rapids, skating rinks, an ice skating house, the list goes on.
Relax and enjoy your stay... Get the best of what Cape Fear has to offer - the cultural attractions of downtown and the not-so-far-away beach!
