Storied travel Experiences
Founded in 1776, the town of Washington, North Carolina, was the first city in America to be named for General George Washington. Because of this, the city is still occasionally referred to as “Original Washington.”
With a beautiful and historic downtown, Washington is known for the stately homes and lovely gardens that make up its residential area, as well as the ornate brickwork featured on the vintage commercial buildings of Main Street.
Located directly on the scenic waterfront, downtown Washington offers unique opportunities to the visitor, from world-class restaurants and intriguing antique stores to art galleries, performing centers, and more.
Washington’s downtown on the waterfront is the perfect place for an overnight stay or a weekend getaway. Discover the charms of the Inner Banks by exploring Washington and its neighbors.
