“A friendly information center.”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

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. I think the closing time was near, however he took to time to explain how the maps worked. If a visitor needs information about the Manteo area, this is the visitor center to stiop at.

“Beginning a Tour of the Outer Banks”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

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.

“The place to go for information”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

We decided to stop in here to get some help as to places to go while we were in the Outer Banks. The staff could not have been friendlier and answered all the questions that we asked. We were able to take any brochures that we were interested in and we did not feel pressured to leave. They did make us feel very welcome.

“Check the web for road conditions”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

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 traffic and after one hour, decided to go the long way home through Manteo. At least the traffic was moving there!
