Long Description:
Here's your opportunity to be a Cape Fear Explorer! The Cape Fear Explorer Passport is a great way to discover the history, the science, the culture, and the excitement of the four-county region known as Cape Fear.

After visiting a participating site, have your passport stamped before leaving. When you collect six stamps, from at least two participating counties, send a copy of your passport to the Wilmington/Cape Fear Coast Convention and Visitors Bureau. By return mail, you will receive the Cape Fear Explorer patch.
