SOMA: Manteo, North Carolina

SOMA: Manteo, North Carolina

Manteo, North Carolina, is on Roanoke Island. It’s the island before you get to the islands that make up the Outer Banks. Virginia Dare, the first English child born in the then-colonies, was born here. Manteo is also the site of the Lost Colony. Stepped in a bit of history and tourism, the town has a rustic charm while offering some unique attractions visitors won’t find anywhere else.

Among the site visited in this photo adventure are the Fort Raleigh National Historic Site, the Elizabethan Gardens, Festival Park and downtown Manteo. The top photo is of the Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse, which is a sister to the lighthouse near our home, the Roanoke River Lighthouse in Edenton.
