There are brochures for every activity under the sun for the obx, but if u have a toddler forget about going inside. They gave me a hard time because my son wasn't on a leash.

There are brochures and maps here if you're new to the area. Lots of helpful info to be found. Explore Manteo and Roanoke Island as well before you cross the bridge to Nags Head!

Gave us tips on the area and a free beach to drive on to see wild horses. Got some coupons too! People were friendly and they have literature on everything around. Large restrooms.

The attendant was so very helpful!! She gave us a map and directions to get to each lighthouse. She also gave us a great deal of information on what to see and do while we were in the Outer Banks!!

There was a great selection of maps and brochures, and the man on staff was friendly and helpful. It's worth a stop to see all the area has to offer.

The man I talked to provided me with a wealth of information about nearby sites in the Manteo area, at least two maps and the GPS address of the Bodie Lighthouse.

Just happened to pull over as we were nearing Manteo. Very hospitable staff and lots on information. A great way to get started with well stocked gift shop and pamphlets about the Outer Banks.
