Discover That Which You Did Not Know About Elizabeth City
Clunky section title? Yea we know, but what's more important is the incredible natural landscape this northeastern North Caroliney city possesses. Yes, we said ""Caroliney."" Consider it our effort at regional jargon, catchy or not.
Elizabeth City became a place of no small import just over 200 years ago, when the completion of the Dismal Swamp Canal (what a name) connected the various waterways of the region with the all powerful port of Norfolk in nearby Virginia. Speaking of imports, this had quite the salutary effect on North Carolina's ex-ports. Today this city of nearly 20,000 is considered one of the ""best small towns in America"" by at least one guy, author Norman Crampton. He puts it in the top 100, a mighty compliment considering the total number of such entities.
The Coast Guard make a home here. In fact it's their largest home on the east coast, recently brought into the Department of Homeland Security fold. If this is news to you, it should be.

How Much Is That Apartment In The Window?
We sure hope that Apartment's for sale. If our subtle reference here to an old fashioned song didn't bring a reminiscent tear to your eye, then you're just an ol' stick in the mud. Or maybe you just didn't like the song.

Come Visit The Town With The Very English Name
Yea, we said very English, and we stand by it. At this late date this North Carolina locale's connection to the old world is tenuous at best, but we suppose its namesake deserves an explanation.
It's actually kind of a funny story, as begins so many other stories, true. This city currently home to ~18,000 folks was named after either Queen Elizabeth I of England, or the proprietress of a local tavern by the name of Elizabeth ""Betsy"" Tooley who'd donated a bunch of land. Apparently nobody is quite sure which of the two to attribute the city's very title, but we imagine the former name is the favored one to drop from the lips of local tour guides.
Otherwise known as the ""Harbor of Hospitality,"" - pretty catchy, really - Elizabeth City is scenically set back from the Atlantic Ocean by the Pasquotank River, the Albemarle Sound, and a slew of watery inlets and outlets. See for yourself via a photo taken from an airship. Wow, how cool would it have been to be along for that ride?
The city unfortunately leaves something to be desired in the realm of social indicators. Its median income is on the, how shall we say, lowish side, and its got a poverty rate that ought to be dealt with pronto, but apart from that it's not like Elizabeth City is an epicenter of ruin porn. Let us thank the lucky stars that shine bright in the North Caroliney nights that things haven't gotten that bad.
Food, Fun, And More In Elizabeth City
Dining opportunities abound 'round here, and luckily for Californians such as ourselves (and undoubtedly some of you too), Mexican is on the menu in the form of the 3 Amigos, El Patron, and El Parian restaurants. Mexican food that is, heh. And how does seafood strike you? Eager to play tongue hockey with a squid tentacle? You recoil, but that's exactly what you're doing and you know it. Anyway, if the answer to our loaded question is ""Yes,"" then we recommend C&H Oyster Bar, Marina Restaurant and Bar, or the bluntly yet effectively named Quality Seafood Company.
Be warned. The city's dining guide refers to Pizza Hut as ""Italian"" food. We're not so sure about that.
Ok, so let's assume the worst. Let's assume you've chowed down on everything above. Assuming you haven't keeled over or gone into some kind of deep food coma, by now you're in need of some serious kinetic activity to burn off all those calories. Luckily Elizabeth City's recreational outlets offer a great way to achieve that goal. Move your hands and feet at the Albemarle Family YMCA, the Dismal Swamp State Park, or the wackily named Fun Junktion, wherein one can partake in ""catch and release"" fishing. Here's more on that whole concept (warning: controversy ahead).

With 12 schools serving over 6,200 students, this district was rated better than just 18.3 percent of school districts in North Carolina and 22.1 percent of school districts in the country. Elizabeth City is also home to some private and religious schools, as well as three institutions of higher learning.
How much are utilities in Elizabeth City?
Elizabeth City's residents generally pay 4 percent less than the US average for utilities each month. Since Elizabeth City has a variable four-season climate, utilities will change from significantly from one time of year to another. Just as heating drives gas bills up in the winter, air conditioning will raise the electric bill in the summer. On average, however, gas and electric should not exceed $275 per month for a family of five, and the water bill should amount to about $25 a month. Thus, the grand total for utilities should amount to about $300, on average.
