So glad we visited here! Very good film on the lost colony. Wonderful exhibits & nice walking trail. Operated by National Park Service & free. This is a great place for families.

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.

This visitor's center wasn't on my list to visit, however I am glad I did. 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.

Coming back from a couple nights in Nags Head we found that the bridge work across the Sound that had been reduced to one lane on Thursday was still one one leaving on Saturday. It was still summer time & we couldn't believe that they would be doing this on a weekend! We went 6 miles in stop & go... More

When we visit a new area we first look at Trip Advisor and determine the top attractions, restaurants, etc. Then, we visit an Information Center and match what we think we want to see with local information.
