Local Info

RiverSound is nestled on the Inner Banks of North Carolina just a few minutes from, Edenton. The Inner Banks is the inland coastal region of eastern North Carolina that consists of over 3,000 miles of pristine winding inland coastline. This area is home to the Albemarle Sound, the Pamlico Sound, the Intracoastal Waterway and endless creeks and rivers feeding into the Atlantic Ocean.

Nearby historic Edenton, which served as the first colonial capital of North Carolina until 1743, offers everything you need to relax and enjoy life at a slower pace – away from the hustle and bustle of the big city. This beautiful town is home to over 25 homes and public buildings from the 18th and 19th century that make up the extensive historic district. The quaint downtown is vibrant with small shops, eateries and a movie theater that cater to both residents and visitors. The beautiful downtown waterfront is a community park offering spectacular views of the Albemarle Sound and still retains remnants of Revolutionary War cannons.

Of course the water is the biggest draw to this area and it’s everywhere. From RiverSound you can explore the Albemarle and the Intracoastal or head out into the Atlantic for a deep sea excursion! If you rather take your boat than drive you can dock at the waterfront of downtown Edenton or the beautiful nearby waterfront town of Elizabeth City. You can even boat out to the beautiful Outer Banks of North Carolina as well!

If you like to fish or golf you’re in the right place too! Choose from freshwater fishing in a quiet, tranquil creek, river or the Sound or venture out to the Atlantic for some of the finest deep sea fishing on the east coast. If you prefer golf, just select from any of the superb courses in the nearby area around RiverSound.
