Our LPG team LOVES  live music, especially this time of year when the days are long and we can enjoy tunes by the water and in some other pretty awesome outdoor venues.  We thought we would do a little research and pull together some of the places to see live music in and around Wilmington: From downtown to a few beach towns,  be sure to save this list for family activities all summer long!
