Discover a place still wild more than 300 years after the English arrived--where eagles soar above the ancient Roanoke River; black bear, deer and small game roam the woodlands and fields, and wildgeese and tundra swan cover sparkling Lake Phelps.

Discover the skill of Native Americans in a 4400-year old dugout canoe and other artifacts. See the Blacklands that once produced giant corn and, today, offer biotechnology for the future. Explore the simple Colonial-era Davenport homestead or ramble through restored buildings and grounds of the Antebellum Somerset Place. During Living History weekend hear cannon roar and muskets fire; see the crafts of everyday life demonstrated and take a Torchlight Tour of Civil War homes. Visit the Port o' Plymouth Museum for Civil War and other exhibits. Climb to the top of the Roanoke River Lighthouse replica for a birds eye view and don't miss the Maritime Museum. Paddle, sail or motor the waterways; camp on a peaceful platform in the swamp, or speed things up with a track-side seat at the Outer Banks Motor Speedway drag strip
