Everything You'll LOVE in Sneads Ferry

Outdoor recreation   

Nestled along the New River, Sneads Ferry has always been known for its valuable fishing spots. Local fishermen scour the river for flounder, river mullet, and trout and venture out into the Atlantic for blackfish and shrimp. Blue skies and soft breezes, plus plenty of sunshine, make Sneads Ferry the ultimate boating destination. Here, you can rent skiffs to explore the sound waters or book a charter boat for a deep sea fishing adventure.   

Local events  

When you read Sneads Ferry's welcome sign, you'll see "Home of the Shrimp Festival" at the bottom. This festival is the bread and butter of what Sneads Ferry is all about—good music, good times, and of course, shrimp fresh off the coast! When summer comes to a close, locals can look forward to the Fall in the Ferry Festival.  

A+ education 

Sneads Ferry residents are served by Onslow County Schools, which is among the 15 largest school systems in North Carolina. The district has 39 educational facilities with more than 27,000 students currently enrolled. The school district has steadily grown throughout the years, increasing by an average of 300 students per year. Sneads Ferry Quality Childcare & Preschool and Dixon Middle School are located right in the heart of the community. 

Shopping & dining

A true testament to Sneads Ferry's commercial fishing roots, Riverview Cafe has been serving up fresh seafood in the area since 1946. As the oldest restaurant in Onslow County still in operation, the cafe has become a staple among locals for its American comfort food and New River views. And if that's not enough seafood for you, you can check out Midgett & Son's Crab Company for more mouth-watering bites. Shark Attack and Tsunami Surf Shop are two of the area's most popular beach clothing stores.
