Welcome to the Harbor of Hospitality — Elizabeth City. Our quaint coastal town with plenty of Southern charm will make you feel at home in no time! Located mid-way down the East Coast with a mild climate, Elizabeth City is a great place to visit any time of year. With our unique location in northeast North Carolina, we are a short drive full of waterways and woodlands to the beautiful beaches of the Outer Banks and the nearby big cities of Hampton Roads. We’re only an hour from the Norfolk International Airport, so it’s easy to enjoy your stay in our waterfront community, experience a tasty meal at a locally-owned restaurant, and relax without all the hustle, bustle, and traffic of a big city.

Our coastal town is the perfect place for a romantic weekend getaway full of gorgeous water views, sunsets, tasty food and more for the couple looking to escape from the chaos of everyday life for a bit. We’re lovingly known as the Harbor of Hospitality and you’ll soon see why!

When you’re in town, be sure to stop by the Visit Elizabeth City Welcome Center, located in the beautiful Museum of the Albemarle, Monday through Saturday. Our friendly staff will be available to answer all your questions and give you the rundown of the best sights to see and places to go to make the most of your trip to Elizabeth City. We hope to meet you very soon!
