Birthplace of the first American born colonist Manteo has left her mark on history with many events that have shaped our country. It is located just off the Nags Head area of the Outer Banks and is a true island connected only by a few bridges. Though Manteo is mainly residential there are a few vacation investment opportunities within Pirate’s Cove and the Shallow Bag Bay Club.
The area offers a wealth of attractions including an aquarium, the Elizabethan Gardens, and the longest running out door drama – The Lost Colony. The Lost Colony details the history of the first colony in America and their mysterious disappearance. The one thing that is not a mystery is Manteo’s island beauty denoted by her lively waterfront district and Spanish moss covered trees. If you are looking for a place with lots of southern charm Manteo is it. You too will get lost in her splendor.
