Edenton has historical homes and gardens along the waterfront and memories of the pirate Blackbeard. The Edenton Carriage Company helps preserve this history by giving visitors the option of traveling through the area in a horse-drawn carriage.

The Sunny Side Oyster Bar in Washington is well known throughout the region. Run by C. T. Roberson, the restaurant specializes in steamed oysters and shrimp. Roberson has operated the store since 1945, when he took over the restaurant from his parents. What has made the Sunny Side such a success is the quality of food and a special â€œsecretâ€ sauce. Visitors can find the restaurant tucked away on the corner of Highway 64 and Highway 17.
