very clean center-the restrooms were spotless. the two gentlemen working the info desk were very helpful. they gave us suggestions on good local seafood restaurants. plenty of flyers for attractions can be had here. nice civil war marker outside gave some historical context. a great place to stop before crossing over to the outer banks.

By the time one gets to Manteo, the anticipation of getting to the beach has been replaced by car fatigue. The Visitor's Bureau is one of the first stops on the way in to Manteo, and a good spot to stretch your legs a bit. It doesn't face the road, but the parking lot does.

This was the first place we stopped at when we finally got to the OBX. And like the saying goes the first impression is everything. And it's right. This place was clean well kept. And from there we feel in love with OBX.

We stopped in for a quick stop to just check out the center. It was very clean and had lots of brochures.Inside the visitors center people are there to help you with any questions about the Outer Banks.it was worth the few minutes to stop.
