Just a short drive from TidalWalk, you can visit the beautiful Riverwalk and beaches. So many exciting family-friendly day trips that make living in TidalWalk a great location!


Wilmington has everything you love about a historic Southern city.  The area was voted as America’s Best Riverfront.  Visitors can stroll Wilmington’s scenic Riverwalk lined with boutiques, cafes, and vibrant nightlife.  Plus, three gorgeous island beaches; Wrightsville Beach, Carolina Beach, and Kure Beach, are just a few minutes away.

So many wonderful options and they are all just a quick drive from your home at TidalWalk!


Fishing for your health…so grab a line.


If you call TidalWalk , home, then you don’t have to go far to cast your fishing line. Residents of TidalWalk enjoy the private dock and boat slips that allow convenient access to the Intracoastal Waterway, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Cape Fear River.

The coastal community also provides outdoor amenities that any fisherman/woman would appreciate. TidalWalk boasts a 15-foot pier that extends into the Intracoastal Waterway with a second-level gazebo featuring comfortable benches for residents to relax. The community also features a private dock with 10 boat slips. These community features could actually help residents live a longer more stress-free life!


Of the 46 million Americans who fish today, more than a third are women, according to the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation and the Outdoor Foundation. Fishing is a fun activity for the entire family, and it also a great way to unwind.

Perhaps it’s the combination of mental relaxation or the easy form of exercise, but a recent study shows that fishing can relieve stress. That after just 3-days of fly fishing, participates reported a 32% reduction in guilt and a 43% decrease in feelings of hostility. It even helped lower PTSD symptoms. That could make a huge difference, considering 80% of Americans say they are frequently stressed.

We also can’t forget that fish is delicious and healthy! All you need is a fishing starter kit that includes a rod, reel, line and flies… and then head over to the TidalWalk Pier..and relax!

Happy Mother’s Day from TidalWalk


It’s the one day a year that we cherish the woman we have loved all our lives… our mothers. But finding the perfect gift can be challenging. When asked, most moms said they would like to spend quality time with their children on Mother’s Day. With today’s busy schedules, time is priceless. Here at Tidalwalk, you can spend that time enjoying your family in your own community.

Mother’s Day is such a special time for families. We want our moms to feel loved, pampered, and appreciated. Although time is precious you many also want to purchase something for your mom. Of course, your mother will love anything you give her. A nice piece of jewelry is always appreciated. Flowers are a welcome surprise especially roses or a lovely spring bouquet. And you can never go wrong with a fragrant candle.

A modern tradition is to also take your mom to Sunday brunch on Mother’s Day to enjoy a nice meal and perhaps a mimosa. Here are some links to help you find the perfect place to talk your mother for brunch and also some other ideas to enjoy your day with family. Mother’s Day is Sunday May 10th.

Happy Mother’s Day from TidalWalk!
