We’ve gained an extra hour of daylight, the weather has turned seasonably warm, and you can almost hear a collective sigh of relief now that spring is just around the corner!
Spring in Edenton is a charming time of year. Flowers are blossoming, outdoor activities ramp up, and people just seem to have a little more pep in their step.
Even though we’re enjoying spring, now is the time to plan your SUMMER trip to Edenton.
I know, you don’t want to rush through spring because Edenton does offer a lot during this season, but with the rising temperatures, people begin to think about and plan for their summer vacations.
Things get booked up quickly, and I don’t want you to miss out on all that Edenton has to offer in the summertime.
So, if you’re thinking about visiting Edenton soon, why not get a head start? Let me tell you why summertime in Edenton is purely magical.
Situated on the Albemarle Sound, Edenton is a waterfront town. We enjoy seasonally warm weather with refreshing breezes, so people enjoy the many activities centered on the water.
You can take a boat tour with Captain Mark’s Liber-Tea and learn about the town’s maritime history while sipping a drink and enjoying spectacular sunset views.
You can dine al fresco on fabulous seafood at waterfront restaurants The Herringbone, Waterman’s Grill, or Edenton Bay Oyster Bar.
If you’re all about outdoor activities on the water, you can rent kayaks or canoes at the waterfront park or join in with the local sailing club who provide sailboats and instructions for any level sailor.
During the summer, Edenton’s downtown offers the perfect place to stroll, shop, and stay.
What’s better than parking your car and never needing it again while you enjoy your hard-earned vacation?
Several airbnb and vrbo rentals, as well as quintessentially charming Bed & Breakfast Inns, are situated right downtown, so you will be within walking distance to fabulous shopping, dining, and entertainment options in Edenton.
But, these garden cottages, main street apartments, and luxurious inns book up fast! So, you need to schedule your summer plans now.
Finally, Edenton is all about community and cultural events in the summer.
Whether you enjoy a baseball game with peanuts and popcorn, an art stroll with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, or a waterfront concert with food trucks and vendors, summertime in Edenton offers something for everyone!
Peruse Edenton’s calendar of events for all of the important event details so you can pick the perfect week for your summer visit.
Just remember, some of these events require advance reservations or tickets, so making your summer plans early guarantees you a front-row seat.
No matter when you visit Edenton, I know you’ll be immersed in the beauty and relaxation of the “South’s Prettiest Town” and you may even (like so many of us) end up deciding to stay.
I wouldn’t blame you if you did!
