We visited lighthouse and waterfront early am before it got crowded. I was very pretty and quaint little town with shops and boats anchored at water. I enjoyed this little town.

This is a free and scenic "must see " when you are visiting the downtown Manteo waterfront. Stroll along the boardwalk, snap some beautiful sunrise pictures and take in the newly reconstructed net shed. The lighthouse Is open daily from 8-5 and is neat to see see some some marine exhibits and to read about the history of the screw pile type lighthouse that was popular in Roanoke and other local sounds over a hundred years ago.

This is a great little lighthouse. We have wedding pictures on it and with it in the background, and it is just such a perfect fit for Manteo. I love that people have their ceremonies here, though I haven't dealt with renting it, so I'm not sure how that experience would be. I think it's just a quaint, perfect little lighthouse.

I walked by the lighthouse from across the harbor while taking a Ghost Tour. It was evening and luckily I was able to see the lighthouse at work. Provided a beautiful display and, while it isn't tall and purely cylindrical like the typical lighthouse, it was still a sight too see. Something to look out for if you're in the area.

We stopped in Manteo to see the lighthouse. Very impressed by the town, shops, eateries, boats , etc. Worth a trip to get away from tourists and big box "wings" shopping stores. Spend an afternoon on Roanoake Island... Plenty to do.
