Christmas Things to Do in Elizabeth City NC

Christmas Things to Do in Elizabeth City NC

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year". I'm sure that melody is stuck in your head and singing it has become second nature. Christmas brings out joy in people. We get to create fond memories. And giving to charity is present throughout the season year after year.

You get to hear the sweet sound of Santa Claus ringing bells on every street corner. Clothing and toy drives have become an initiative in every mall. This season really brings out the best in us all. The kindness experienced during the Christmas season should be practiced all year round.

Everybody dreams of having a white Christmas. It’s just so beautiful waking up to discover their yard covered in snow. The cold also makes the day better, since the snow makes everything stunning. You also get to warm up in front of the fire.

Anyone's mood can be improved by the joy and celebration brought on by the holiday season. Families join together to share food and gifts. Neighbors chat, and strangers grin at one another. Everyone is affected by the holiday mood; nobody can withstand its joyful atmosphere.

Let’s look at my list of some of the amazing Christmas things to do in Elizabeth City, NC.

Page After Page Bookstore

Are you looking for something that the kids will remember for years to come? Well, Page After Page Bookstore should be your first stop on a Saturday! Here you can catch two elves with one sugarcane. No no, you don’t get to actually catch an elf or two.

What I mean is, during the holiday you get daily holiday book discounts. Oh and let’s not forget Christmas-themed story times and free hot cocoa on Saturdays!

Page After Page Bookstore offers this special Christmas initiative. Perfect for the little ones to enjoy a Christmas story. They also know that it is cold and you will be there for a while, so they handout free hot cocoa as well. Click on their link to check out their page or visit them at 407 McArthur Street, Elizabeth City, NC.

Water’s Edge Boutique

Were you out shopping all day? Dying for a break to just relax and enjoy the holiday spirit instead of the busyness that comes with it? Why not take a break at Water's Edge Boutique? Water's Edge Boutique specializes in great clothing, accessories and FUN!

Throughout December you may take a break from Christmas shopping and pop in for some hot cocoa. You can also paint a festive wooden door hanger which already sounds like fun. And, if that doesn't tickle your fancy well, then they also offer a Sip & Paint event. It's these types of creative small gestures that uplift you and get you in the Christmas spirit.

So head on over to 507 East Main Street in Elizabeth City, NC and check out this amazing store.

Ghost Harbor Brewing Company

Do you ever find yourself in the Christmas spirit and while you do enjoy a cup of hot cocoa, you would rather just have a great beer? Well then, you have clicked on the perfect article for you. Situated at 602 East Colonial Avenue lies the Ghost Harbor Brewing Company. Ghost Harbor Brewing Company is in the historic Palins Alley.

Experience their creativity with a Mocha Coppola Coffee Stout this festive season!

During December, Ghost Harbor Brewing Company collaborates with Muddy Waters Coffeehouse. Their collaboration is a mix of beer, chocolate and coffee to create a unique flavor.

This is not just a stout; it is an experience. It is also exclusive to Ghost Harbor Brewing Company. So head on over and give your taste buds the experience of a lifetime! 

Lighted Boat Parade

When you think about Christmas, what's the first thing that comes to mind? Something you can’t wait to show your children? That’s it, those magical Christmas lights!

Sure it is really nice to see trees draped in lights and lit up Santa's on roofs. Not to mention beautiful homes being covered in decorations. But will they one-day sit back and think about a specific home or tree decorated and draped in lights? You and I both know the answer to that. . .

This year let’s give them an experience they won’t forget.

The Pasquotank Yacht club annually hosts a Lighted Boat Parade. Here you get to see yachts and boats stunningly decorated in the night sailing around the water. It is hosted at Mariners' Wharf Park, Water St, Elizabeth City, NC. It's truly a magical event for all. Check out their Facebook page for more information on exact dates and times as we get closer to the magical season.

After getting accepted to ECU, I started looking for things to do in and around Greenville, NC. However, my searches kept taking me to places in South Carolina! There must be things to do around ECU, so I started asking other students. They kept telling me to graduate and move away! This inspired me to begin exploring eastern North Carolina and build this website as a showcase of the places to go, sights to see, and things to do all over eastern NC. I have fallen in love with this region and started taking up roots here. After graduating, I didn't move away - I bought a house here and continue to explore eastern North Carolina.
