From the mysterious disappearance of Roanoke settlers to the Wright brothers' first flight, the Outer Banks are historically important yes, but they are also postcard pretty with enough beach to share between summer visitors.
Enjoy fishing the two ponds located in Moses H. Cone Memorial Park and take a trip back in history as the ponds were built and stocked in the early 1900's by Moses Cone himself. Today the waters are classified as Wild Trout Waters and carry a variety of regulations depending on the site. No boating is allowed.
