Visitors sometimes ask, “What is there worth seeing in Halifax County?” The first destination that comes to mind is Medoc Mountain State Park. A biological hotspot, representing nearly every beast, and bird of the Southeast, where Eagles soar the skies, and Fox and Bobcats roam the forests. Little Fishing Creek is one of the cleanest small streams in the east. Next would be Halifax County history, where there is a story waiting to be told to every visitor. Halifax, founded in 1757, played a vital part in the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. It's mills and river culture were integral to trade, and manufacturing in the early late 19th century. Tourists can experience a variety of heritage events, sites, and living history enactments that are amazing features in Halifax County. Lastly, every spring from March through June, the Roanoke River becomes ground zero for thousands. Guests from near and far try their luck at the annual Rockfish migration. Up to four feet long and weighing up to 30 pounds, they are the crown jewels of Southern sports fishing. We can’t wait to see you!
