Rocky Mount

Rocky Mount, nestled just off I-95, is a charming locale in Eastern North Carolina that offers an array of exciting activities for visitors to enjoy.

An absolute gem in the Rocky Mount area is the sprawling 82-acre Rocky Mount Mills. This immaculately maintained site is not only a fantastic place to visit or stay, but it also presents an appealing option for permanent residence.

For enthusiasts of craft beer, the Mills campus doubles as a brewery incubator, ensuring a constant supply of new brews to sample. In addition to the breweries, Rocky Mount Mills boasts a variety of restaurants, access to the scenic Tar River, and cozy nooks where you can unwind with a cup of coffee and a good book at Books and Beans.

For nature lovers, Rocky Mount offers several engaging outdoor activities. Whether your preference lies in games, water sports, or hiking, there’s something for everyone. This includes Sunset Park which has a train, splash pad, carousel, skate park, playground, disc golf course, tennis courts, and more. For a nominal fee of $5 a day, you can enjoy all the amenities the park provides, or you can rent it for your next event.

Kayaking enthusiasts can take advantage of the Tar River Paddle Trail’s ten canoe and kayak access points. You can bring your own kayak or canoe or schedule a tubing or kayaking trip through Tar River Life.

For those seeking indoor activities, particularly on inclement days, The Imperial Centre is a must-visit. It houses a Community Theatre where you can either appreciate a performance or participate in one! And the on-site Cummins Planetarium showcases the latest full-dome video and laser light shows. Meanwhile, the Arts Center is filled with fascinating exhibits and workshops where you can create your own masterpiece.
