in Downtown Morehead City
Whether by foot or by water, Downtown has so much to do!
Our waterfront bustles with fishing vessels and pleasure craft in equal numbers. Board an excursion boat to enjoy an ocean tour where you can see wild horses and plenty of marine life. Explore Sugarloaf Island , a natural area and nature trail across from the downtown waterfront.
On land, explore some of the local trails including a Fish Walk and the Promise Land. Fish Walk is a public art trail featuring touchable statues of fish found in our local waters. It begins at the waterfront, brochures available. Promise Land Heritage Trail lets you explore the history of Morehead City’s downtown waterfront and Promise Land neighborhood. Brochures are available.
Stroll our streets lined with historic homes and visit the boutiques, antique shops, and art galleries along the way, then catch a concert during the summer at our waterfront park. LIVE THE WATERFRONT!
Don't miss The History Place where history comes alive with exhibits and programming about our area. Or check out the S.E.A. Room at the Webb Library and see artifacts from North Carolina Shipwrecks, chart your course, plan your voyage or investigate wreck sites before you dive.
You’ll love what the region has to offer in addition to the fabulous beaches that you'll want to return again and again! See all of our activities to the right.
