The Local Area < >

Carteret County's written history dates back to the early 1500's when the barrier islands located between Ocracoke and Bogue Inlets now known as Coree, Shackleford, and Bogue Banks were described as "lush, where supplies of water, fresh meat, fish and wood could be found".  Carteret County was home to the Hatteras, the Coree and the Neuse Indian tribes.  Beaufort, the county's government seat, is the third-oldest town in North Carolina and was surveyed in 1713 and incorporated in 1722.

Today, Carteret County is a vibrant and thriving area with over 60 miles of pristine beaches and abundant waterways for you to enjoy...With our unique beaches running east to west, you can spend hours upon hours enjoying the beach life, from early morning sunrises to beautiful evening sunsets. With activities occurring year round throughout the area, Carteret County is a great place to visit, but a better place to live.
