Take a “Field Trip” in Wilmington! – Featured App

New to Wilmington, visiting on vacation, or looking to discover new places in the area? Check out the new Field Trip App available for Apple and Android. Field Trip connects to a collection of already existing databases from the likes of Arcadia Publishing, Yesterland, Racked, Songkick, and The Worldwide Guide of Movie Locations to bring you museums, points of interest, unusual places, restaurants, and more for you to visit. It identifies your current location and brings up attractions nearby. You can choose to be notified when you get near one or browse at your leisure. You’re sure to find something you never knew existed!
