Carol Terwilliger: Airbnb Superhost and owner of the Eleanor on Belle and Kerr Lake outfitter Gear & Beer.
“Northeast NC has so many ways to be outside. Boating, swimming, camping, parks, golf courses, historic architecture and one of the last drive-in movie theaters. New shops and restaurants are opening up on Henderson’s main street. Which is conveniently located just 40 minutes from Durham or one hour from Raleigh.”
Summer is the best time to enjoy hundreds of miles of lakes, rivers, and trails on the pristine waters of Northeast North Carolina. Plan your boating adventure on Lake Gaston, go paddling on the Tar River Trail or take a walk through history in the beautiful towns of Warrenton, Littleton, and Weldon. Big or small, map out your dream adventure with our Summer on the Northeast Lakes & Rivers guidebook.
With more than 800 miles of shoreline bordering North Carolina and Virginia, Kerr Lake has endless opportunities for camping, fishing, swimming, boating, water skiing, bird watching and hiking trails. Back in town, you can also catch a performance from world-class artists at the renowned McGregor Hall.
