Swansboro, NC

Swansboro, NC

Located along the shoreline where the White Oak River joins the ICW, this “Friendly City by the Sea” is a walkable waterfront community with a rich, maritime history dating back to the 1700s. Recent years have also brought tourism to this quaint town but its maritime history and quiet waterfront remain the same. While there is a relaxed pace to this small, seaside town, finding something fun to do in the warm coastal sun is as easy to do as finding the perfect seafood dinner with a view. We recommend Saltwater Grill (with public slips) for locally caught seafood and upscale fare for lunch, dinner or drinks at 99 Church St. (910-326-7300). Closed on Mondays.

If you the time, visit nearby Hammocks Beach State Park, an Island retreat with seasonal ferry service, a beach, campsites, outdoor showers and a snack bar.
