Ray Scott to Headline U.S. Coast Guard Concert, Aug. 8


Welcome to the Harbor of Hospitality®

Whether you’re looking for a carefree weekend getaway or a fun little spot that’s part of an extended itinerary, Elizabeth City is the place to be. Located on the Pasquotank River, the city was incorporated in 1793, but our beginnings date to 1663 when the Lords Proprietors of Carolina laid out the Albemarle area with Pasquotank County right in the center. Today, our “Harbor of Hospitality” plays host to an inviting waterfront, vibrant downtown, excellent places to shop and dine, historic homes, a thriving arts community and one of the U.S. Coast Guard’s busiest bases.
