The Outer Banks of North Carolina are a favorite destination for many East Coast and Mid-western vacationers. Modern highways and high span bridges bring these travelers to the Dare County beaches and to historic Roanoke Island and the towns of Manteo and Wanchese. In the early 1900's, before the highways and bridges, even before the ferries, travel on the Outer Banks was much more adventurous....

Roanoke Island is a place of special importance. It was here that Sir Walter Raleigh established the first English settlement in the New World. The fate of "The Lost Colony" remains a mystery, but its exciting story is told nightly during the summer season near the site of the original Fort Raleigh. In nearby Manteo, a replica of the ship that brought the colonists to the island is docked. No trip to the Outer Banks would be complete without a tour of Elizabeth II and a night at The Lost Colony.

Roanoke Island is only minutes away from the beaches of Nags Head and Kitty Hawk. Equally close is the entrance to Cape Hatteras National Seashore, the gateway to Oregon Inlet, Pea Island National Refuge, and Hatteras and Ocracoke Islands. Sunbathing, beachcombing, and just soaking up some rays are obviously some of the areas pastimes, but you really must visit The Wright Brothers Memorial, located in Kill Devils Island. This is where the Wright Brothers built their plane and launched mankind into the age of powered flight. There's so much to do -- fishing, birdwatching, biking, shopping -- and it's all only a few hours drive from most major East Coast metropolitan locations.
