Destination Edenton

By Air, Land or Water.

Edenton is a destination well worth visiting. Only 90 minutes from the Hampton Roads area of Virginia, or a little over 2 hours from Raleigh or 75 minutes from Roanoke Island and the Outer Banks.  Washington DC, Philadelphia and Charlotte are a little further but within an easy morning’s drive. In other words, Edenton is a great escape for a weekend, a few days or as a lifetime location for your business or retirement.

Edenton is also on the road to everywhere.  Be it via the Ports at Norfolk or Morehead City, the proposed I-87 link between Raleigh and Norfolk or anywhere in the world from which our 7,000′ runway will take your jet.

You can get here from there. ~ Map Q
