Roanoke Rapids

Roanoke Rapids and all of Halifax County NC is a paradise for sportsmen and outdoor recreation. Scotland Neck NC is home to the world?s largest waterfowl park, featuring over 1,000 ducks, geese and swans of more than 170 species.

Both Roanoke Rapids and Weldon are known as "the rockfish capital of the world", where the banks of the Roanoke River are packed from March to May as striped bass anglers attempt to catch the rockfish as they come upriver to spawn. Agriculture is celebrated in the towns of Enfield, home of the annual Peanut Festival and the famous Aunt Ruby?s Peanuts, and Hobgood, home of the annual Cotton Festival. If you love the water, enjoy Roanoke Rapids Lake and Lake Gaston, both of which with public access facilities. Halifax County's own Medoc Mountain State Park offers hiking trails, picnic areas, camping, fishing and canoeing.

Although not in the record books, don’t miss what we call the world’s longest museum—the Roanoke Canal Museum & Trail!
