Peaceful place to just sit by the water and eat an ice cream or drink a cup of coffee and just watch the boats come in and out or people watch. There a playground for the little ones too!

A beautiful trip around the dozens of islands in North Carolina Outer banks is a great experience, watch lighthouses, the beach, the wild horses.

Even though it’s a replica of the nearby lighthouse that was lost to the marsh, I love this little marsh lighthouse. you can’t go to the second floor for safety reasons, but there was a nice display of information available on the first floor.

Visited in April 2018. Short walk from Monteo waterfront. Unable to access the second floor (roped off). Small amount of historical plaques.

Very cute replica of an older lighthouse. Functional light with 4th order Fresnell lens in place. Interesting exhibits, but you can’t climb it. Parking is free but fills up quickly.

Take US-158 south to US-64, go right over to Roanoke Island. Take the US-64 right towards Manteo. At Fernando Street, take a right. Got to the end and park. It’s right there.
