Escape into the

S O U N D C O U N T RY

Sunrise in Sound Country and the sound of seagulls beckons wanderers to see the natural beauty that surrounds our home. Anglers and shrimpers idle out to their fishing grounds, bicyclists find the meandering paths along our backroads, and nautical adventures await the seasoned sailor. Our abundant wildlife along our fields, forests and waterways provides a pictureperfect backdrop to those who seek solitude in our region’s charm. The best way to experience Pamlico County is on the water. Bays, creeks and rivers all provide an interconnected link to the Pamlico Sound estuary. Bring your own boat and launch in the many available boat accesses and marinas. For something more active, launch a kayak for a tranquil exploration in the many hidden nooks and crannies in our waterways.

< < < Home to a large fleet of commercial fishermen, all of Pamlico County’s villages have a connection to the seafood industry. Watch fishermen unload the daily catch at several “fish houses” and seafood markets. Shrimp, crabs, fish and oysters are harvested here year-round and provide for a spectacular seafood dinner at our many restaurants.

FARMS, FARMERS MARKETS & PRODUCE MARKETS Throughout Pamlico County, you will find several options to pick up some fresh produce. Whether large scale farms or roadside markets, both can be found along the heavily traveled corridors and backroads. What ever the season, you will find an array of local, homegrown goodness. Pick your own produce and fruit farms dot the region as well, so be on the lookout in May when it is time to pick strawberries. Pamlico County’s agricultural districts are some the largest in Eastern North Carolina. In early summer, truckloads of potatoes will head to market and make their way well known potato chip makers in the country. Cabbage and sweet corn are also harvested, packed and shipped to the major hubs in the region. By summers end and the approaching fall, grain corn and soybeans will go from combine to grain bin, awaiting their turn at making the trek to market. Out here on the edge of tobacco road, as North Carolina is known, you will still see the tall, green stalks of a bygone era of when tobacco was king. Sown, planted, suckered, picked, and cured, the long process to get tobacco to market is a long one. Etched in our history, much of Pamlico County’s farm history is forever part of the tobacco road heritage. In today’s ever-changing world of farming, Pamlico County’s proximity to so much water has ushered in the technology of aquaculture. Whether it is farm raised hybrid stripped bass or using cages to produce oysters in the creeks and rivers, you will find our products outstanding. Pamlico County also is home to a diverse, hormone free, grass fed cattle farm. Grazing on high quality pesticide free local grasses, high quality organic meat for your family is raised here.

Along the shores of the Neuse River,

tee off at Pamlico County’s only golf club. With beautiful scenery accompanied by a soft river breeze, golfers of any level should put this course on their bucket list. However, golfers may hear the echoes of a trumpet sound beckoning nearby “campers” to the mess hall for lunch. Or they may catch a glimpse of one of North Carolina’s ferry boats moving travelers across the river. With a stunning setting and year-round mild weather, golfers at Minnesott Golf and Country Club can hone their skills on the green. The Club is located on 253 acres of land fronting the Neuse River. Created in the 1960’s, the golf course has provided many visitors and new comers an opportunity to enjoy the game of golf without leaving Pamlico County. With the beautiful views of the Neuse River and nestled among scenic landscapes and towering pines, golfers can expect to find a unique golfing experience in this coastal oasis of natural resources. Regular sightings of white-tail deer and other wildlife compliments the backdrop of the course beauty and tranquility. Whether you come for the golf or just to drop by the clubhouse to fellowship with friends, you will find yourself at home at Minnesott Golf and Country Club. The Live Oak Grill and Bar is a fully licensed restaurant offering a variety of traditional and healthy culinary delights. In the summertime, the club pool is open for you and your family enjoyment.

Campers Delight

Pamlico County boasts a large number of youth camps along the river. Many children experience their very first adventures of a week at camp here. Offering overnight camping opportunities, kids who come here learn to make independent decisions, challenge themselves, succeed in learning a new skill and make life-long friendships and memories. Here along the rivers, campers have the chance to focus on learning a variety of maritime and seamanship skills. With wide open spaces, plenty of water, fresh air, steady winds and team of instructors, the quest to ride the wind in learning how to sail or learning to swim builds confidence and character. Being on the river is not the only activity campers will find, they will find just as much fun on land. Traditional camp activities such as tennis, golf, crafts, archery and athletics are also included in their busy days. At the end of a day of fun on the river, the camp trumpet sound will echo across the river and sleepily Pamlico County’s visiting youth will “call it a day.” They will dreamily fall asleep to the sound of a gentle breeze and seagulls, all to do it again tomorrow. 30 |

River Ride photography by NC Department of Transportation

THE NORTH CAROLINA FERRY SYSTEM One of the most scenic places in Pamlico County is riding one of North Carolina’s Ferry System’s ferries across the Neuse River. One can travel by ferry to and from Pamlico County via the Minnesott Beach – Cherry Branch ferry. The ferry system is Pamlico County’s only water route connecting our region to nearby Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point and The Crystal Coast. The free 20-minute ferry ride allows travelers to soak in 360° views of the Neuse River. You may feed the seagulls, watch the local crabbers empty their daily catch from their crab pots or see the numerous sailboats on the horizon catching the wind in their sails. One may even see a pod of dolphins swimming alongside, while the waters are calm beneath the boat. Riding the ferry is a memorable. It is one of those journeys where you truly get to experience, “where land and sky meet the water.”

When does the Ferry leave? What are the routes? Minnesott Beach to Cherry Branch is free, but what about other routes? Go to pg. 34 > photography by NC Department of Transportation

SOLID foundations

N O W T H AT Y O U A R E H E R E , W E H AV E A L L THE NECESSITIES TO KEEP YOU HERE.

Since the beginning, Pamlico County has provided the foundations for a better life for its residents. Our schools, medical centers, senior living centers and programs rank in the top in North Carolina.

Our Teachers’ Commitment Sets Us Apart

When it comes to education, Pamlico County Schools works to provide engaging classroom environments and opportunities that prepare its students for the world beyond. The approximately 2,000 student school system excels in several focus areas that are critical for providing a quality education: quality instruction, high academic achievements, a supportive learning environment, and a strong parental and community network. Our public-school system serves grades Pre-K thru 12th. Because of our low population, our schools are known for excellent programs and activities, such as the weekly Elementary Spelling Bee, STEM Program (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), NJROTC, competitive sports and athletics program, drama and music. The excellent diversity of our community and richness that it brings to our schools is distinctive for a small rural school system in Eastern North Carolina. We also have public Arapahoe Charter School, serving K-12, and the private Pamlico Christian Academy that incorporates a daily spiritual curriculum. Pamlico County also offers an early education program for children younger than Kindergarten age. Pre-kindergarten classes are offered to 4-year-olds in all three school systems and at the Pamlico Community Development Center. Several locally owned private day care centers are located in Pamlico County. Residents can also pursue a college education at Pamlico Community College. Recently ranked as the #3 college in the nation by SmartAsset, the college offers a variety of degree programs and distance learning opportunities. The college enables residents to reach their education potential with the luxury of staying close to home. 42

We have the blueprints for an energy efficient home. Air leaks in your home can be hidden in walls, floors, basements and attics, or in your ducts. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, around 30% of heated or cooled air never reaches you. Instead, it leaks behind walls and out the attic or basement. Leaks cost you money on electric bills, and they make you uncomfortable. Our energy auditors start with a survey to determine observations, behaviors, needs, and desires of the homeowner. If you don’t test, it’s just a guess. We look at your home as a system with each component impacting the others.

We determine the needs of your unique home, and prioritize recommendations for energy savings. Our home energy audit identifies potential problems and provides access to cash rebates to help you pay for the improvements.* If you own a home, or plan on building a residence within our service area, call Tideland EMC and get started with a FREE energy audit today!
