One of North Carolina’s most loved port cities, Wilmington, has earned high praise for its riverfront living, coastal charm, and river-based annual festivals. These include the Azalea and Riverfest festivals that attract crowds across the country. It is also a city with heavy WWII and Civil War prominence, hope to the Battleship North Carolina, the prestigious Bellamy Mansion, and the 67-acre Arlie Gardens with its remarkable collection of indigenous plants.

Some of Wilmington’s most popular attractions include Downtown Wilmington, Riverwalk, the Historic District, the New Hanover County Arboretum, Cape Fear Museum, and the Wilmington Railroad Museum.

If you own a business requiring regular transport of small to large groups of passengers (think, senior living, child care, churches, and more), TESCO is happy to pair you with the right new or used bus, vans, and shuttle.
