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.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
