Scenic Water Front, Rich History, and Great Events
Beaufort County North Carolina is one of the only counties to be bisected by a large body of water, providing acres of waterfront property for recreation. As one of the oldest historical areas in the Southeast, Beaufort County NC also has a rich culture, filled with interesting areas for visitors and residents to investigate. The rich history and beautiful waterfront hold something for everyone.
|The Beaufort County Arts Council
The Beaufort County Arts Council (BCAC) is located at 108 Gladden Street in historic downtown Washington, NC – just one block from the waterfront.
BCAC has been in North Carolina since 1963 when the Pamlico Arts Group was formed. Overtime, the BCAC has become a premier outlet for local artists and craftsmen to showcase their unique work.
The NC Estuarium, located in Washington on the Pamlico River, lets visitors explore the ecology of North Carolina’s estuaries, some of the threats facing our vital coastal rivers and sounds, and ways humans have used this ecosystem for thousands of years.
Enjoy the Outdoors, Recreation on Water and Land
|Goose Creek State Park – Washington, NC
Giant, old oaks draped in Spanish moss welcome you to this special world where broad, lazy Goose Creek joins the Pamlico River.

Goose Creek is conveniently located between historic Bath and the original Washington.
Relax here on the scenic riverfront, enjoy picnics, and let your hectic life slow down!
