Sound Golf Links at Albemarle Plantation

Reviewed By Maddy122355 - Bridgeton, New Jersey

Have been here many times. The course is demanding and worth the effort. The clubhouse grill has great food and very friendly staff. The view from the dining room looks over the Albemarle Sound. Prices are reasonable. Never had a bad meal there.

My wife is recovering from knee replacement surgery and want to get away from home for a few days, and I suggested Edenton, a historic little town in Northeastern North Carolina, We went to the Visitors Center and the Welcome Center and saw a good video on the town's history. She decided she was not able to do the two-hour walking tour to visit all of the historic buildings, but we took the hour-long trolley tour. The guide was fantastic and knew this history of all of the old buildings in town. I would recommend either tour for tourists.

Penelope Barker House Welcome Center

Reviewed By knowhimwell - Morehead City, North Carolina

I was in Edenton for the day, and I am Very Glad that I went to this historic home. A lot of interesting history here. I came home to find out my 14yo daughter had actually heard of Penelope Barker and her political involvement. I wish I had brought her with me.

Perquimans Arts League Gallery

Reviewed By Sheryl C - Hertford, North Carolina, United States

This is a lovely gallery and gift shop located in Historic Downtown Hertford. Most everything is handmade by local artists, and there is a large variety of items available. Choose from pottery, jewelry, fiber arts, painting and much more. They also carry postcards of local scenes. The gallery has frequently changing exhibits of artwork, and new items arrive all the time. It was a little difficult to find, as they don't have a storefront, but it is straight ahead as you walk in the front door of the building.

Jim Catfish Hunter Museum

Reviewed By Geobiscuits - Albany, New York

A tiny little museum in a cute, historic building downtown Hertford. If you are in the area, worth a visit for baseball fans. Also in the same building as the Chamber of Commerce where you can get local goods such as amazing peanuts and arts/crafts. Stop by the Woodards Pharmacy luncheonette a few doors down for lunch.
