Wilmington: The Best City in North Carolina

Posted by

Have you ever thought “Wow, Wilmington is the best city in North Carolina?”. Well, you were right! A recent study found that Wilmington is the favorite city in North Carolina.

Public Policy Polling, a national polling company, conducted the study with 953 North Carolinians to determine their preferences on various topics, including barbecue, basketball, doughnuts, and the state song. Last time the study was conducted five years ago, Wilmington and Raleigh tied for first place with a 67% favorability rating. This year however Wilmington won with 69%, followed by Raleigh with 62%, then Asheville, Winston-Salem, Greensboro, Chapel Hill, Charlotte, Cary, Greenville, Durham, Fayetteville, and Carrboro coming in last.

Wilmington received such a high favorability rating because there is so much to offer. There is the beach, river, Intracoastal Waterway, shopping centers, a rich history, amazing restaurants, and friendly people. Wilmington is an exciting, welcoming town and great place to live.

 

High Seas Dreaming

Posted by

Since its founding in 2011, YachtVenture has grown into one of the most successful fund-raising events on The Children’s Museum of Wilmington calendar.

This year’s event proved to be the best yet, attracting a record fleet of 15 yachts, a record crowd of more than 400 people, and a record fund-raising total of more than $60,000, according to Kathleen King of The Children’s Museum.

What is YachtVenture? In essence, it’s a way for us landlubbers to get a small taste of adventure on the high seas. Each year for the last six, local yacht owners have opened up their boats to the public for the benefit of The Children’s Museum.

This year’s event was held on Saturday, October 15th at MarineMax in Wrightsville Beach. In addition to the Yacht Crawl, it featured music by Professor DJ Dub, food by Sawmill Catering, a silent auction for a variety of great prizes, and a raffle drawing for a sailing cruise to Barcelona.

The Landfall Foundation is a proud sponsor of The Children’s Museum of Wilmington, which was founded in 1997 to stimulate the imagination and a love of learning and provide an opportunity to explore and better understand art, science and culture.

A Good Bi-Valve to Summer

Posted by

Could there be a better way to say good-bye to summer than an old-fashioned oyster roast in your own backyard?

Just ask the more than 200 Country Club of Landfall members who filled the back lawn of the clubhouse on a splendid October Sunday afternoon to celebrate the start of fall and get their fill of fresh local oysters and plenty of adult beverages.

The oysters were roasted on a fire in a big hole dug by our Greens Superintendent Jeff Mack and shucked by an expert team from the Country Club of Landfall staff. Beautiful weather, a brilliant sunset and live music from the band Stray Local added to the day’s enjoyment.

The feast was the brainstorm of private events coordinator Megan Foltz and Stephanie Granger of the Country Club of Landfall staff, who consistently find new and imaginative ways to bring together members of all ages for memorable experiences.  Our members enjoyed the feast so much that we ran out of oysters and had to place an emergency order to our friends at Seaview Crab Company to bring us a few more bushels!

“We all had so much fun we’re definitely planning to put this event on our calendar next year,” Megan said.
