We went today in the hopes of doing something fun at the waterfront. We found zero things to do, and the Visitor Center was closed. Only open week days.

We went to Elizabeth City waterfront during the end of August - which might be the reason not many people were there.

Some people said the vendors change weekly,... More

Peaceful place to sit and sip coffee and enjoy the water and people watch. Calming effect. Nice to take photos and watch the birds come and go.

We liked Cypress Creek Grill. Bobby the owner is hands on and walks around greeting guests and making sure everything is as expected. Our server had just moved to the area and was excellent. Great smile and attitude!!! Very accommodating. Prices were great too and so was the food and selection.

While visiting Serenity Studio Arts on Main Street one Saturday morning, the owner encouraged us to visit the Market. We took a stroll to the Waterfront to find an eclectic blend of fresh fruit, crafts, and even bunnies for sale. My three young daughters enjoyed the breeze of the water and the friendliness of the locals.
