Elizabeth City has a Stocking Full of Holiday Events!


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 North Carolina vacation itinerary, Elizabeth City is the place to be. Located on the Pasquotank River, 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, charming downtown, excellent independent restaurants, historic homes, a thriving arts community and one of the U.S. Coast Guard’s busiest bases.

Come and #DiscoverECity for yourself!
