Roanoke Island Activities & Programs

Whether you're coming to Roanoke Island for a day or two weeks, don’t misinterpret its small size – Roanoke Island activities and programs practically spill from this community. Any anticipated boredom will have to clear out of your schedule as you meander through festivals in downtown Manteo, battle giant cobia on charter fishing trips, clap and cheer during plays and concerts or expand your knowledge at museums and aquariums. Roanoke Island activities bring people from all over the Outer Banks together for a bit of fun and entertainment. If you’re looking for some athletic activity, check out the boats available for charter fishing trips, led by captains and mates who can take you to the best fishing spots. Join a yoga class one day to activate your vacation Zen. Or take part in the weekly runs through town that happen on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. Enjoy Manteo’s natural environment as you walk along the boardwalk that overlooks the waterfront, run around in Roanoke Island Festival Park and listen to the stories the interpreters tell, take a class at the Elizabethan Gardens or explore the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge with a wildlife ranger. Check out the Island Farm where you can go on ox rides, or visit the North Carolina Aquarium where you kids (and adults!) have regular chances to engage in classes and activities to learn about marine life. Roanoke Island activities are fun for people of all ages, so the whole family can accompany you as you’re immersing yourself in Roanoke Island culture. Check out the listings below to see what fun awaits you in your Roanoke Island adventure.
