The Enchanting Beach Park In North Carolina You Never Knew Existed

Although located next to one of the most popular destinations on the coast, The North Carolina Aquarium, one might never know this secluded nature preserve exists. Situated on 265-acres, the Theodore Roosevelt Natural Area was gifted to the state of North Carolina in 1971 by the Roosevelt Trust as a way to celebrate Theodore Roosevelt’s dedication to conservation. Today, it serves as a peaceful destination mixed with coastal vibes, thickets of pine forests and water views.
