What’s New?

Summer in Wilmington is here, and it’s time to soak up the sun and enjoy all that our vibrant city has to offer! Whether you’re planning a beach day, exploring our historic sites, or sampling local cuisine, there’s something for everyone. Remember to stay safe by staying hydrated, wearing sunscreen, and practicing water and traffic safety. Keep an eye on our newsletter for updates on events, attractions, and helpful tips to make the most of your summer adventures!

Sun Protection:

  • Wear sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher and reapply every 2 hours, especially after swimming or sweating.
  • Wear sunglasses with UV protection and a wide-brimmed hat to protect your face and eyes from the sun.


  • Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water, especially during hot and humid days.
  • Avoid excessive alcohol and caffeine, as they can contribute to dehydration.

Heat Safety:

  • Avoid strenuous outdoor activities during the hottest part of the day (typically 10 AM to 4 PM).
  • Take frequent breaks in the shade or indoors to cool down.

Water Safety:

  • Swim only in designated areas supervised by lifeguards.
  • Always supervise children around water, including pools, lakes, and the ocean.
  • Wear life jackets when boating or participating in water sports.

Insect Protection:

  • Use insect repellent containing DEET or picaridin to prevent mosquito bites, especially during dawn and dusk.
  • Wear light-colored clothing that covers arms and legs in areas where mosquitoes are prevalent.

Pet Safety:

  • Keep pets hydrated and avoid exercising them during the hottest times of the day.
  • Never leave pets in a parked car, even with windows cracked open.
