Jan - Mar 4 - Daily - Riverfront Rink
The frozen Wilmington river front is quite a sight to see and now you can enjoy it in a whole new way with the popular, newly-added ice skating rink. The Riverfront Rink is stockpiled with winter treats like concessions and a warming tent, not to mention the fact that it's surrounded by an abundance of tax-free shopping options, marvelous museums and a towering IMAX movie theatre. This option is a great way to get outside and stay fit without freezing. The breathtaking scenery surrounding the area is a bonus.
