Gladd Family Beach Trip 2014 [Wilmington, NC]



By 0

If you missed it last week, check out Part 1 to this two-post series about our recent trip to North Carolina.  In the first post, I shared with you all of our favorites around our beach house in Wrightsville Beach.  This second post will highlight things to do and eat in the neighboring Wilmington area.  There’s a lot to find in this city, and below are some things I think you should do during your trip to Wilmington.

Boombalatti's Ice Cream Shop - Wilmington, NC - Amazing homemade ice cream, fresh every day!Eat Ice Cream: When you’re on a summer trip, you must treat yourself to ice cream…at least twice.  We found this amazing homemade ice cream parlor not too removed from the beach, called Boombalatti’s.  If you can choose only one place to indulge on vacation, choose Boombalatti’s.  The ice cream is probably the best I’ve had…ever.  Seriously.  My favorite ice cream shop by far.  The flavors are super interesting, the consistency is spot on, and it’s all fresh, fresh, fresh!  I’m going to have a separate post detailing more on Boombalatti’s later, because it’s definitely worthy of it’s own mention.  But, here me now: YOU.MUST.GO!  (Order the sampler.)
