August is just around the corner. Summer is in full swing, and many exciting things are happening in Edenton before the kids head back to school at the end of the month.
August is a great time to visit Edenton! This month, you can explore the endless history of Edenton, visit our shops downtown, stay at our B&Bs, and catch a glorious summer sunset over the Albemarle Sound from the porch of the Penelope Barker House.
There’s always something exciting to do in Edenton!
