Historic Edenton offers a perk for visitors who arrive via boat – two-night complimentary boat slips in Edenton Town Harbor. The slips are protected by a breakwater and have full electrical hookups, with restrooms and shower facilities in the harbor park just steps from the dock. Free Wi-Fi is also available in the park.
The free boat slips provide a unique way to experience the Prettiest Small Town in the South. Within walking distance are shops and restaurants, museums and historic sites, and meticulously preserved homes from the early days of North Carolina’s first colonial capital. Enjoy a historic walking tour that includes homes of a signer of the Declaration of Independence, a signer of the U.S. Constitution, and a justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Or, hop on the Edenton Trolley for a guided history tour of this Inner Banks town.
Guests are welcome to stay on their boats or in one of several bed-and-breakfast inns in Edenton. Edenton Bay is on the Abemarle Loop, a boating loop that includes nearby harbors of Columbia, Plymouth, Hertford, and Elizabeth City.
To reserve a free boat slip for one or two nights, complete the overnight reservation form on the Town of Edenton website.
