The South's Prettiest Town
Thanks to Edenton Travel and Tourism Authority for this information and link:
The residents of this first colonial capital of North Carolina love sharing with visitors its rich history, scenic beauty, and exceptional architecture. Edenton is home to three National Historic Landmarks, one of which is the state’s oldest courthouse, built in 1767 and still in use. Recently recognized by Forbes.com as one of America’s Prettiest Towns, Edenton continues to show her age with pride.
Today, you will find a vibrant downtown with unique shops, eateries, and a variety of other businesses. An active calendar of events covers outdoor recreation, including sailing, paddling, biking, and baseball. Cultural events and seasonal festivals are plentiful and more picturesque set against the remarkable backdrop of this historic town and its lovely waterfront vista. http://visitedenton.com/
