Located on North Carolina's Inner Banks region, residents of Elizabeth City apartments can invite their friends to visit their city nicknamed "Harbour of Hospitality" for its welcoming nature. The thriving city of just under 20,000 people sits on the banks of the Dismal Swamp Canal and many of its residents are employed by Elizabeth State University, Coast Guard Air Station Elizabeth City, or the Albemarle Hospital and Medical Park. The Coast Guard Station is the largest of its kind on the east coast and was featured in multiple scenes from the Disney movie, "The Guardian."
In recent years, the canal has been undergoing renovation, with new docks and various businesses setting up along the water. Fishing makes the city a popular destination for visitors and Elizabeth City apartment-ites, with many tournaments for freshwater fish. Established in the late 1700's, Elizabeth City has numerous historical locations with six National Register Historic Districts. For a walking tour guide, stop by the Dismal Swamp Visitors Center or the Museum of the Albemarle, where you can also find out more about the people and culture of the region. Port Discover is another very cool museum where adults and kids can explore hands on science.
There's always something buzzing here, so you can be glad to call your Elizabeth City apartments home.
