We did a kayak trip and stayed in a Roanoke River Partners platform outside of Hamilton. Went up to see the Halifax historic district. Perfect patriotic day trip for Independence Day.

This is a great place to take the kids. The visitors center has a museum and a very informative 15 min video. Most of the historic area is within walking distance. There are several guided tours which are completely free.
