  1. Fort Fisher State Park south of Wilmington. Fall is a wonderful time to visit.
  2. All you need is someone with a good platform that effects everyone and has a personality that people like. We did it here in Wilmington/New Hanover county. Our state Senator is an openly gay woman. Julie Boseman was elected to replace Patrick Ballentine who ran for governor last time around. His hand picked conservative replacement ran behind her in the polls, and as a desperate last minute attempt made her sexuality an issue. The republican party released flyers and commercials about her being a lesbian and the results were he fail father behind in the polls shortly there after! If you have a candidate that people like they forget about the rest. In 2006 Julie Boseman was reelected to the state senate. This time many of the local elected democrats did not support her still afraid of the repercussions of backing a lesbian, IMO. She has made a difference here. Passed a lot of bills of local interest and state interest that have popular appeal. She has a partner in life and a child. She does not hide either of them. When she was reelected people voted for her because of what she is doing not her sexuality. FYI, New Hanover County registered voters are almost evenly split, 38% democrat, 38% republican, 22 % unaffiliated and 2% whatever is left.
