Location sets Brightmore of Wilmington apart, thanks to our dramatic Carolina coast. Wilmington offers unique appeal due to its mild seasonal changes, rich traditions and a blend of small-town charm and big city advantages. One of America’s oldest port cities with cosmopolitan flair, Wilmington has lured artists, treasure seekers, historians, and beachcombers for centuries.
Our campus lies just 10 minutes away from historic downtown with its captivating riverside and streetscapes, and is close to major shopping centers, supermarkets, hospitals, and medical practices. We’re also minutes from world class golf courses, soothing day spas, cultural arts, a major university, historic quests, and of course, our legendary Carolina beaches.
Accessibility also gives us an edge. Nearby Wilmington International Airport and easy access to I-40 and I-95 make Brightmore of Wilmington a welcome destination for family and friends.
“As pleasant and delectable to behold, as is possible to imagine.” Even in 1524, explorer Giovanni da Verrazano described the Cape Fear coast perfectly.

With several educational institutions, state-of-the-art healthcare, a rich cultural and arts scene, large film industry, and a variety of sporting options, Wilmington offers more recreational opportunities than your social calendar can accommodate.
