Pasquotank County

Pasquotank County capitalizes on its position in the coastal plains and along the scenic waterfront of the Pasquotank and Little Rivers.  Outdoor enthusiasts can explore the Great Dismal Swamp State Park along its northern edge or travel down the river to the Albemarle Sound on its southern end.  Elizabeth City, the county seat, is home to museums like Port Discover, higher institutions of learning like Elizabeth City State University, and military installations like the U.S. Coast Guard base, which is the largest Coast Guard base in the world.
