Things To Do
There is something for everyone in Elizabeth City! The city is a distinctive Main Street community with six historic districts, including the waterfront where the famous Moth Boat was created in 1929. Our town boasts a state university—once home to Roots author Alex Haley—and two colleges; the largest Coast Guard air base in the country; and the Museum of the Albemarle, which interprets the history of the 13 counties that border the Albemarle Sound. So come and stay for a while at Elizabeth City. There are plenty of places to explore and interesting things to do, as we you see.
