Discover Roanoke Island
Spend your day exploring the charm of downtown Manteo for food, drink, shopping, and more before making your way to the Waterside Theatre for The Lost Colony. Here are a few ideas of things to do on an afternoon in Manteo:
Take a stroll along the waterfront
Enjoy a walk down the boardwalk for some time by the Roanoke Sound. You can even check out the Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse or take the family to the Waterfront Playground with swings, slides, and a play ship for kids to enjoy.
Admire the work of local artists
The Dare County Arts Council is located in Downtown Manteo and features the original artwork of local and regional artists in their gallery. The selection of artwork is constantly rotating and features a variety of mediums, making it a fresh viewing experience each visit!
Visit a variety of shops
There are plenty of shops to wander and discover while you’re exploring downtown. Head over to Downtown Books to pick up a good beach read, or take the kids to the Laughing Lollipop Soda Pop & Candy Shoppe to find some old favorites and treat yourself.
Located on the waterfront, grab an early dinner at Avenue Grille. If you present your confirmation, The Lost Colony guests receive 20% off!
The Lost Colony’s 82nd anniversary season opens May 31st and plays through August 23rd, 2019. Complete your Roanoke Island experience and reserve your seats! Head over to our ticket page to get your tickets to the show for this season!
