How do you plan on visiting Edenton this year?
Like many, you probably expect to drive here or potentially fly into one of the airports around Edenton.
But, I’d like to suggest a different option.
Visiting by boat.
Edenton is a town full of fascinating history, stunning architecture, and one-of-a-kind places to visit.
And one of the best ways to connect with Edenton’s maritime history is to come in through the Albemarle Sound.
Our maritime visitors arrive in one of two ways.
Edenton is a popular stop on the Albemarle Loop, which connects waterfront communities throughout the Albemarle Region. While traveling the Albemarle Loop, you can see many different interesting sites.
Many travelers on the Albemarle Loop choose to stay at our boat slips because of our thriving downtown, access to history, great food, all within a short walk of the waterfront.
Some of our more adventurous visitors stop in Edenton as they navigate the Intracoastal waterway, which runs from Boston in the north through the southern tip of Florida in the south.
Stopping in Edenton gives them a chance to get off the boat, stretch their legs on land, and maybe stay at one of our B&Bs for a night or two.
And, when you do stop in at our new-and-improved boat slips reopening this month, you get a host of special amenities to make your stay even easier:
- Complimentary 2-night boat slips
- On-site restrooms and showers
- Fresh water
- Pump out
- Laundry nearby
- Restaurants within walking distance
- Kayak rentals
We are finishing up significant improvements on our waterfront and boat slips, so you’ll be sure to enjoy your stay when you explore the maritime history of the Albemarle Sound.
Coming to Edenton as a maritime visitor is a unique and memorable experience that you won’t soon forget!
