This past year, I had the pleasure of visiting Historic Downtown Wilmington, North Carolina, and cruising down the Cape Fear River not once but twice. My husband thought I did it because I hadn’t visited there in years. LOL! You all know what the real truth is, right? Ah, yeah, the truth is that I really visited because of Outlander. From reading the books, I knew that Jamie & Claire and the rest of the gang would find themselves in Wilmington in Season 4 and I wanted to see it through a different lens – the Outlander lens. So, now that you’ve seen the portrayal of Wilmington on screen, let’s take a look at Historic Wilmington and the lower Cape Fear River today through this photo essay from me, an obsessed and history-crazed Outlander fan, who also is NOT a professional photographer! You can click on each image to see it larger. Enjoy!
