In the Know: Roanoke Rapids
Whether you live in Roanoke Rapids, are visiting or just passing through, there is an attraction, event or restaurant just waiting for you. With the river running through town and the surrounding scenic area there are plenty of outdoors, nature-related activities. There is the Medoc Mountain State Park and many city parks to enjoy; nature trails for hiking and biking, fishing, canoeing, camping, and hunting. If it is more culture that interests you, there are museums, crafts, arts, and music gatherings, concerts, and events. There are restaurants, diners and coffee shops that will serve up tasty cuisine to meet your palate. Steer away from the chain restaurants and try one of our unique, fresh eateries such as Second Street Lunch where they serve homemade hamburgers and hotdogs – this isn’t just fast food, it is great food! Stop by the historic district for a visit to the old-fashioned homes and buildings restored to its former glory. No matter what, Roanoke Rapids has that for which you are looking. Stop by, sit a spell and enjoy some of our southern hospitality.
