About Elizabeth City

Known as the ‘Harbor of Hospitality,’ Elizabeth City is a historic and vibrant city located along the Pasquotank River in North Carolina. Centrally located between two popular summer destinations, Virginia’s Hampton Roads and North Carolina’s Outer Banks, this community has a lot to offer to both its residents and vacationing guests.

With the Norfolk International Airport, the Outer Banks beaches, and the Norfolk Heart Hospital all within a one-hour drive from the city, residents can enjoy a "gentle pace of life" while still being in close proximity to the necessities. Not only do routes 17 and 158 provide easy access to and from the city on land, but there are also many rows of docks for seabound travelers. Elizabeth City is no longer a huge seaport for large freight ships, but there was a time that this community was the hub of travel to the New World. The waterfront serves as a fisherman's paradise, and gives locals the opportunity to enjoy outdoor sports including boating and water skiing.

Downtown Elizabeth City offers many different things for people to do, including shopping, dining and a thriving arts scene. There are three colleges and a large local museum, the Museum of the Albemarle, which promotes an understanding of the region’s history. The U.S. Coast Guard has a strong presence in Elizabeth City, including the largest Coast Guard Air Station in America. The community hosts several annual events, one of the more unique and significant being the North Carolina Potato Festival, which celebrates one of the region’s most important crops.

The housing options in Elizabeth City are abundant, including six distinct historic districts that have preserved the culture and personality of this old sea community.
