growth asap - 1/5/2012
Elizabeth city has has alot of potiential square feet wise that is. Other than that the city needs some people (Out of state) with common sense to run the city, city counsil ect.. There is plenty of land to expand the city for business and jobs. But it seems that the city would rather spend money on law enforcement? our city grows more in poputation tremendously every year!!! and the only thing we do about it is hire more officers, and a few fast food restaurants. I feel that we are the lost colony. If you dont work for yourself, pepsi, or the coast guard my prayers go out to you.I will say that if the city does not do something about positive grown for the next genereation its not going to be pretty at all. Someone please save Read More

I like Elizabeth City - 9/9/2009
I spend most of my life in Elizabeth City. It is a great place to live and most of my family call it home. Elizabeth City is a small rural community that post alot of spacious living and a quaint lifestyle. It is a great place to move to if you are looking to live in a quiet safe setting. Some of the draw backs to Elizabeth City is that there is not alot to do in the way of Entertainment. Most people travel to Chesapeake Virgina for things to do like movies, shopping, and the like. If you love to fish and hunt Elizabeth City has alot to offer. Being a riverside community we have alot of watersports on the Pasquotank River. The river looks dirty but it is not due to the swamp being so close. We call it Cypress Tea water. We are also located close to the Outerbanks and there is alot to do there during the summer months. There are not alot of Jobs in Elizabeth City so do not move here looking for a job. There are several good employers but the people in these jobs usually stay till Read More

OK - 1/5/2008
I wish I could explain living in EC. I really have nothing to compare it to, since I have lived here since 2nd grade and really can't remember Houston. I'll try and explain everything here, so that you can form your own opinion.
EC is about 13,000 people. An hour from Virginia, (with MAJOR entertainment stuff there), and an hour from the huge tourist attraction, the Outer Banks Beaches.
The movie theatres include one small one, with two theatre rooms. Plays most movies out. If they don't play the movies, the other one does. This one is a dinner-movie thing (a matinee??). This is a really nice one, but you have to stand outside for half an hour to even get in.
There is one bowling alley, and it is not a very good one..people smoke in it all the time, and it is very dark and smokey in it. It stinks, and is very foggy-looking. Other than the smell, its not that bad, except I wouldn't suggest leaving your child there at 10 at night, becuase there are Read More

Not what I had hoped for! - 3/7/2007
Elizabeth City is an area filled with division and mediocrity. There is a severe education problem. The drop out rate is through the roof. The teen-age pregnancy rate is ridiculous and no one even addresses the issue. There is an AIDS problem. There are so many run-down areas with no apparent hope of revival. In short, it is an area where education is not stressed, dreams are practically non-existent and culture in non-existent. If you are an educated middle-income person DO NOT MOVE Read More

General Insight - 8/28/2005
Generally a scenic area with major activities a road trip away. Touristy and pricy during season. Very humid during summer with rain weekly. Spring and fall are very nice. Light snow at winter peak.
Job market sparse for professionals with salery range far below expected. Major city to the North, Norfolk VA. High amount of workers commute to VA for employment.
Scale 1-10: with 10 being best/Beauty:7, Climate:7, Housing:8, Crime:5, Teen Activities:2, Wage:5, Cost of Read More
