My family and I enjoyed a nearly perfect spring evening in historic Edenton, N.C., where we dined on fresh seafood at Waterman’s and listened to live music at Boogie on Broad, an event sponsored by Destination Downtown Edenton, a non-profit revitalization organization. The Embers, North Carolina’s legendary beach music band, drew a packed street, and the party was still going strong when we left well after 9.

Edenton isn’t known for its nightlife so much as it is for its beautiful historic district. Established in 1712, the waterfront village has preserved its colonial- and plantation-era architecture, earning it a listing on the National Register of Historic Places, and more recently, spot on Forbes’ list of America’s Prettiest Towns.

I’m only sorry I didn’t have more sunlight to take more pictures of this sweet town.
