Gals’ Weekend Itinerary

Shining along the Albemarle Sound is a waterfront destination primed to host memorable girls weekends.

Fresh off arriving in Edenton, stop by the Edenton Coffee House and get your caffeine fix. If coffee isn’t your thing, fear not, as the family-owned and operated staple also features teas and fruit smoothies. Fuel up for your next adventure with Surf, Wind and Fire’s nitro brew.

Now that you are caffeinated, are you and your girlfriends ready to step back in time and explore the first political action by women in Colonial history? Great, head to the Penelope Barker House Welcome Center and get to know Penelope along with 50 other brave women who trailblazed the Edenton Tea Party.

Okay, while you may not be able to sign the petition enacted in 1774, today, you can visit the Barker House and take in the views of Edenton Bay while relaxing on the grand front porches lined with rocking chairs.

Located just up the street is the circa 1758 Cupola House. Here, you can take a stroll through one of North Carolina’s featured Heritage Gardens. The grounds have been maintained by local volunteers for many years. Here is a guide to the seasonal flowers and plants that surround the historic home.

Wind down at one of our locally owned restaurants where you can enjoy fresh seafood pulled from local waters or farm-to-table options.

  • Edenton Oyster Bar
  • 309 Bistro
  • Old Colony Smokehouse
  • Waterman’s Grill
  • The Table at Inner Banks Inn.

In town on a Saturday? A local favorite, Edenton Bay Trading Company, hosts a weekly vinyl night with DJ Eddie & Melissa and offers homemade sangria.
