North Carolina is known for its beautiful beaches, southern hospitality and even its delicious barbeque. But there is more to it than that; and the Albemarle Area is especially full of exciting attractions for the whole family!

History is alive and well in nearby Edenton.   This gorgeous small town is known for its authentic architecture and offers daily walking or trolley tours that are educational and entertaining for everyone. Also, not far from the Inner Banks are many North Carolina lighthouses.  The Roanoke River Lighthouse offers tours that the whole family will enjoy.

If just taking in the scenery and culture isn’t enough and you’d prefer to get some exercise and entertainment, you have to check out the area golf courses.  The Sound Gold Links in Albemarle Plantation is second to none.  Book a tee time or come out and watch a tournament and enjoy the weather and incredible views.

Both history and sports come together at the Jim Catfish Hunter Museum located in downtown Hertford.  The quaint museum represents small town USA and celebrates the life and career of baseball star Jim “Catfish” Hunter.  A must for baseball fans!

Take the family camping to take full advantage of the incredible weather in the Inner Banks.  Morrow Mountain State Park  has everything you could imagine for a fun family adventure.  There is something for everyone whether it is horseback riding, fishing, hiking, swimming or just relaxing by the lake, Morrow Mountain State Park can’t be beat.

There is something for those of you that crave culture as well.  Also in the Historic District of Hertford, the Perquimans Arts League exhibits and sells the work of local artists and crafters.  Whether you are looking to take in incredible art work or purchase hand crafted jewelry, pottery, wood or glass items, The Perquimans Art League has it all.

The opportunities for fun and entertainment in the Albemarle Plantation area are endless.  But, enjoying your time with family and friends is the most important part!  There is no better place in North Carolina to take in all it has to offer!
