Beat the Winter Blues in Elizabeth City

Welcome to Elizabeth City, NC!

We invite you to visit our little home located on the shores of the broad and picturesque Pasquotank River. If you are looking for a friendly and laid-back destination, we might be what you are looking for. You will most likely leave here having made a new friend or two.

What will you find when you visit? Cypress trees rising from our waterways, Blackbeard’s cannon in Museum of the Albemarle, four neighboring state parks, ghosts of the underground railroad, and one of the best sailing breezes on the east coast.

Over the centuries, our destination has served as a starting point for explorers and adventurers such as the Wright brothers because of our central location on the coast.

Start your adventure here.
