Welcome to Eastern North Carolina!
Nestled between the Raleigh-Durham area and the Outer Banks coastal region, Eastern North Carolina offers an array of parks, recreational activities and interesting attractions. At Cliffs of the Neuse State Park, visitors enjoy camping, fishing, hiking and an educational museum providing exhibits and displays about the geological history of the park's cliffs. Southeast of Washington lies Goose Creek State Park, another popular recreation site offering hiking and canoeing trails, a swimming beach and exceptional scenery on Pamlico River. Greenville is the largest city in the area, boasting a massive convention center, an art museum and May Museum and Park, a historic site highlighting the history of Pitt County. Washington's North Carolina Estuarium, another impressive attraction, features living aquariums, environmental artworks and historic artifacts from the region. A favorite tourist site just west of Windsor is Historic Hope Plantation, where visitors have the chance to tour the Federal-era home of former North Carolina governor David Stone.
