Founded in 1776, the town of Washington, North Carolina, was the first city in America to be named for General George Washington. Washington, or “Little Washington” as it is fondly known, is beloved for its small-town hospitality and charm.

Little Washington combines Southern charm and beautiful natural settings to create one of the “coolest small towns in America,” according to Budget Travel. From miles of waterway trails and the country’s very first Estuarium, to local restaurants and art galleries, the destination is a favorite among travelers throughout North Carolina and the surrounding states.

Located directly on the scenic waterfront, downtown Washington offers visitors beautiful sights, outdoor adventures, art galleries, performing centers, Southern cuisine, and more!

Washington’s downtown on the waterfront is the perfect place for an overnight stay or a weekend getaway. Explore Washington and its neighbors and discover the charm of the Inner Banks.
