Inside the Fort Raleigh National Historic Site, look for Elizabethan Gardens, a memorial to the first colonists marked by renaissance statues and meticulously managed landscapes. The 4 hectare (10 acre) park features shaded paths that will lead you through forests and colorful plazas, and you'll see interpretive plaques with useful information about each important sight. Numerous art and craft workshops and festivities take place here throughout the year. Check out the garden shops, which offer a selection of plants, statuettes, candles, soaps, and sweets.
