|About these ratings|
Located in Manteo, the Roanoke Island Festival Park takes visitors back in time to the 1500s and the settlement of Roanoke. Inside the park, you can board the Elizabeth II ship, you can visit Indian Town and you can tour the Settlement Site -- all the while interacting with re-enactors wearing period dress. The park also offers a history museum, an art gallery and a performance series.
Some visitors compared this park to the Jamestown Settlement and found it lacking, but others were quite pleased with the experience. Admission is fairly cheap, and if you visit the park's website, you can print a coupon that gives you $1 off your admission.
