Elizabeth City
The Hot Cocoa Capital of the World

There’s nothing like the holidays to transform the Harbor of Hospitality® into
“The Hot Cocoa Capital of the World!”

Join us from November 25 to January 15 for Elizabeth City’s 2nd Annual Hot Cocoa Crawl!

Treats & Eats   •   Stocking Stuffers   •   Stay & Play

To celebrate this timeless, holiday cup-of-joy, local businesses have united to create a trail of the yummiest hot chocolate treats and cocoa-inspired experiences for locals and visitors to sip and savor. From tradition-with-a-twist to chocolate-infused cocktails to handcrafted cocoa-themed gifts — our community-wide Hot Cocoa Crawl has something to satisfy everyone from Scrooge to Santa. 

Along with the coziest mugs of chocolatey goodness, we’ve decked-out downtown and created a sleigh-full of local events — including our “Christmas Around the World” parade — to make the holidays in Elizabeth City extra special. 

Here’s a printable list of participating businesses (as of November 15)
