Pet-friendly rentals in Wilmington
Kure Beach lies on the southern end of Pleasure Island. This area is riddled with history, waiting to be dug up by visitors exploring with their pets.
Relax on the beach watching anglers cast their lines from Kure Beach Pier, the oldest on the Atlantic Coast. Alternatively, venture off-shore with pet-friendly kayak excursions with our friends form Kayak Carolina. Explore the Fort Fisher Historic Site to see the South’s largest earthen fort used during the Civil War. Set off on the famous Basin Trail in Fort Fisher State Recreation area, where your dog will lead the way to a World War II bunker. If your dog still has energy, wear them out playing fetch at the Gurney Hood Barking Lot in Joe Eakes Park.
