Located in Tyrrell County, Colombia is a short drive from the Outer Banks. As the county seat of one of the poorer areas in North Carolina, it’s population was 810 in the 2010 census.

Colombia is home to the Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge center and the Pocosin Arts School of Craft, a regional art center.

Besides the main road which leads to the Outer Banks, there isn’t much there. What is there however is pretty awesome. Stop by the Full Circle Crab Company on the way out of town for some awesome locally caught seafood.

These photos were taken on August 6, 2018, during a recent walk/run tour of Colombia and the wildlife refuge.
