A Checklist of Top Roanoke Island Attractions

Despite its small size, Roanoke Island is jampacked with a variety of activities and attractions that appeal to a wide range of interests. Here’s a look at some of the fun that awaits you.

  • Get a look at what lies below the water’s surface at the North Carolina Aquarium at Roanoke Island. The exhibits house everything from amphibians to snakes and even sharks.
  • Sitting on 27 acres, Roanoke Island Festival Park is like a step back in time. Make your way through historic costume interpreters in the Settlement Site or board the Elizabeth II. The park is open seasonally, so be sure to check the hours before visiting. 
  • One thing every visitor to this area needs to experience at least once is The Lost Colony Outdoor Drama. The yearly performance runs during the summer and tells the story of America’s oldest mystery.
  • Surround yourself with stunning flora at The Elizabethan Gardens. Located in Manteo, this spot is a living memorial to the lost colonists and features several types of gardens. Keep your eyes open for the statues found among the plants.
  • When you’re done visiting the Maritime Museum, head across the street to visit the Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse. Constructed in 2004, the structure is a replica of one from 1877. The weathered deck leading up to the lighthouse offers breathtaking views of the Roanoke Sound.
