North Carolina Aquarium on Roanoke Island
Also great for a rainy day, but beware of the crowds. When it rains, everyone seems to have the same idea. Early is best. If it looks too crazy, hit Jumpmasters instead.
Smaller aquarium which is nice for little kids as it’s not too overwhelming. Turtle rescue on sight. We really enjoy taking our 2 year old here on rainy days.
Any day trip to Manteo should include the aquarium! Lots of learning and discovery. Located on the sound so decent views as well. Great for families!
This is a must for visitors. Adults and Kids love this place! Observe the recovery of Sea Turtles and kids get the opportunity to learn procedures to save these creatures.
Visit the Aquarium to see the animals that live here on the OBX. It’s indoor fun for all ages!
“Is a fishing pier with interactive science exhibits for all ages. Longest running attraction in the Outer Banks.”
“This is a really well done musical play about the first settlers on Roanoke island. It is the longest running outdoor drama in the country for a reason. Best to buy tickets ahead of time. The play does have gunshots and real fire, and it runs late, so it may not be best for young children. Though age 7 or 8 and up will love it! There are also some short walking trails there if you want to go early or go back some other time.”
“Look for the windmill to find this local brewery. You will also find an electric car charger here.”

“A fun, unique experience to see the visitor center and climb the highest sand dune on the east coast!”
紀念碑 / 地標
“See where the Wright Brothers took their first flight. Go through the museum, Climb up to the monument (great views!), then go around the back of the monument and let the kids climb on the Wright glider replica!”
