The Family Fun Itinerary

Each year families come from near and far to visit Edenton. They discover historic sites, participate in outdoor activities, and celebrate our special events.

Following a car ride, there is no better way to burn off energy than by exploring one of our parks.

Did all that running around work up an appetite? No problem, from barbeque to seafood, our restaurant's have something for everyone.

  • Old Colony Smokehouse
