What to know before you visit:
Surrounded by wildlife and wetlands, The Braithe Center is located on the northside of Wilmington in a farmhouse in the Scott’s Hill area just past Porter’s Neck at Sidbury Road (near Poplar Grove Plantation).
Many are drawn to Wilmington’s lovely beaches for quiet reflection afterward a session while dolphins swim just off shore, while others enjoy a walk through Poplar Grove Plantation’s nature trails or along Wilmington’s historic waterfront area downtown.
For out-of-town clients traveling to Wilmington for sessions:
Hwy 17/Market Street, I-40 and Airport:
Hwy 17/Market Street and I-40 (two main routes through Wilmington) are just 2 minutes from Braithe Center.
Wilmington Int’l Airport (ILM) is just 20 minutes away from the Braithe Center.
Mayfaire Town Center www.Mayfairetown.com (15 minutes from the airport and Braithe Center, and 5 minutes to Wrightsville Beach) offers restaurants, hotels, and shopping.
Taxi service is also available from the airport as well as Lyft and Uber. Lett’s Taxi (910) 458-2222, Beach Buggy (910) 792-0223 and The Transporter (910) 632-7401 are ones my clients have recommended for dependable service.
