The Wonder of Washington, NC

The waterfront town of Washington, N.C., is as bustling as it is beautiful.

Hailed as the country’s "Original Washington," the city was named after the general who would go on to become the nation’s first president — George Washington. Dubbed an All-America city in 1993 after being recognized as a community that is both collaborative and diverse, it continues to live up to its name.

When you step foot in the city, you'll enjoy the lapping sounds of the Pamlico and Tar Rivers that are as welcoming as the people are friendly and discover the wonder of Washington.
