Elizabeth City is home to a historic downtown with its Harbor of Hospitality less than an hour from the Outer Banks and all the urban amenities of Hampton Roads, including the Virginia Beach Aquarium, Chrysler Performing Arts Center and Norfolk International Airport.

Quality of life? Where do we begin? Ever enjoyed a harbor view from a ferris wheel? We didn’t think so! That’s just a small part of the three-day annual Potato Festival. Weekly, there’s First Friday Art Walk and Third Thursday Jazz at Arts of the Albemarle. Movies on the Green and Music on the Green at Mariners’ Wharf Park. Live performances in the historic Maguire Theater. Science of Beer at Port Discover. Taste of the Albemarle. The Downtown Waterfront Market. Pailin’s Alley with its outdoor dining and Ghost Harbor Brewery. The YMCA with its fitness center, indoor pool, outdoor pool and championship golf course. We could go on . . .

Sentara Albemarle Medical Center - a part of Sentara Healthcare, the largest hospital network in nearby Hampton Roads - is a 114-bed regional hospital offering a full-range of services including orthopedics, cancer, and heart and vascular conditions.
