Visit Swansboro

We think great Italian food is reason enough to take a drive down to Swansboro. But if you’re planning a weekend on the Crystal Coast, the “Friendly City By The Sea” has so much more to offer. Our hometown offers history, culture, scenic beauty, and a range of activities to enjoy.

Downtown Swanny (Airbnb)

Downtown Swanny is found in the heart of Swansboro’s historic district. This waterfront condo is extremely quiet, even though it’s located above The Boro Restaurant & Bar. With just a few blocks are 10 outstanding restaurants, kayaking, boutiques, gift shops, fishing, and boat tours.

You can’t visit Swansboro with trying the seafood. The Boro Low Country Kitchen specializes in seafood boils, a coastal Carolina tradition. Take a seat and enjoy the views of the White Oak River, or call ahead to take your boil out for a day at the beach or on the boat.
