Ava and Outlets

The citizens and businesses of Smithfield welcome you and invite you to explore the historic attractions in Downtown Smithfield, the outlet shopping along I-95, Exit 95, and the recreational activities throughout the town.  Visit the museum that honors the life and career of local Hollywood legend Ava Gardner or take a walk on the Mountains to the Sea Trail that curves along the banks of the Neuse River.

Travelers along I-95 will find an abundance of hotels located at Exit 95, (on I-95 -- very easy to remember). Several of our hotels are participants in the Girlfriends Getaway and Sip and Stay Packages -- so make it a weekend getaway to Smithfield, NC.
