Carolina Place/Market Street

This area is known for its bungalow-style and unique historic homes. Carolina Place, located off Market St., was built from 1906 to the beginning of World War II, which made Carolina Place the first suburban residential neighborhood in Wilmington. The tree-lined sidewalks and small gardens make this area a very charming place to be.

Key Features

Close-Knit Community: This is a historic neighborhood with that feel good, know your neighbor kind of vibe. The sidewalks lead to porches with sprawling flowers and gardens. There are multiple social events throughout the year for children and families to relax and have fun!

Close to Downtown and Antique District: This area is just a short bike ride to downtown and the antique district where you find the farmers market, amazing restaurants, breweries, and the Cape Fear River.

Best Park in the Best Neighborhood

Ok, I am biased, but Wallace Park at the corner of Market and 21st is absolutely amazing. With its old oaks along the creek and a playground that always has kids, it is the best gem in a great neighborhood.

Nest Picks

Wallace Park

One of the best kept secrets in the area is Wallace Park. This beautiful cypress tree preserve with creek and playground is a neighborhood favorite. You will see dogs and children frolicking and having a grand time.


More than just a restaurant, Indochine is a complete Thai-Vietnamese experience featuring beautiful Asian-inspired grounds. Visit the lotus pond or relax in one of the outdoor huts. It will be an experience you will never forget.

4th of July Celebration

Carolina Place throws a big 4th of July celebration complete with bouncy houses, food trucks, bands, fireworks, and tons of fun for the whole family. It's a neighborhood tradition that you don't want to miss.
