River East is Express’ newest community in Swansboro, North Carolina. Known as the "Friendly City by the Sea," is a quaint, historic town located on the North Carolina Coast boarding both the IntraCoastal Waterway and the White Oak River. With water, water, water all around (and the Atlantic Ocean mere minutes away,) it's safe to assume that water sports are the number one activity in the area…and there are plenty to pick from!

Swansboro has historical sites to discover, eclectic shops to explore, and lots of 'family-friendly' recreation like biking, hiking, camping, and outdoor concerts…just to name a few! And, of course, it's always OK to do a little bit of NOTHIN'! After all, you are at the coast!

A crown jewel of the North Carolina coast and Hammocks Beach State Park is Bear Island—a 3-mile-long, undeveloped barrier island accessible by the park’s passenger ferry or private ferry, or by paddling a canoe or kayak. A wide beach between massive dunes and the ocean is interrupted only by primitive campsites and a modest concession/picnic complex. The park’s mainland gateway offers a full-service visitor center and is the launch site for ferry service, canoes or kayaks. Rent or bring your own kayaks, canoes or paddleboards to explore paddling trails leading to marshes, Bear Island or Huggins Island, which is graced with unspoiled maritime forest.

The Swansboro area features three public docks in its historic downtown designed to make access to the town easy and convenient.  The largest of the three, the Church Street Dock, is a fixed and floating dock located at
