The Lost Colony
The Lost Colony outdoor symphonic drama is performed evenings from late-May to mid-August at the park's Waterside Theatre.
Located within the park, the Elizabethan Gardens provides year-round opportunities to enjoy 10 acres of flora as a living memorial to England's first "New World" colonists.
Cape Hatteras National Seashore
Cape Hatteras National Seashore begins roughly 9 miles southeast of the park. Stretching southward for 70 miles, these narrow, sandy islands provide a wide variety of recreational opportunities, as well as a habitat for a variety of marine life.
Wright Brothers National Memorial
Wright Brothers National Memorial is where Wilbur and Orville Wright made history by being the first to fly an airplane. Before they succeeded, they conducted flight experiments here for years. The memorial, located about 19 miles northeast of the park, commemorates their achievement.
