Discover the Northeast Region

This 17-county region includes the Outer Banks and the Inner Banks, an area that surrounds the Albemarle Sound, and the rivers that flow through northeastern North Carolina.  Home to the Cape Hatteras National Seashore and some of the oldest small towns in the state, the slower pace of the region makes it an ideal place to stroll through downtown districts, enjoy the fresh catch of the day or North Carolina oysters, frequent the shops and restaurants, and learn about the river lighthouses and the unique history of the communities.  While there, learn about the agricultural history, make sure to experience the fishing, boating, and waterway cultures, enjoy hiking, cycling, and kayaking through the natural environment, and catch the brogue of the locals that call the Northeast region of North Carolina home.
