    Marvelous maritime municipality on an idyllic island

    Wrapped around Shallowbag Bay on the eastern side of Roanoke Island, Manteo is a little slice of paradise in North Carolina's Outer Banks. Seaworthy visitors will appreciate the boating, fishing, and shark-watching, while landlubbers will enjoy the aquarium, numerous museums, parks, and gardens throughout the beautiful island. Though lovely year-round, summer may be the best time for a Manteo vacation rental because there are a number of festivals that occur between June and August. Though it's known as the "lost colony," you'll find plenty to do at this North Carolina getaway.

    Fishing, fireworks, festivals - and historical theater

    Break out your boat shoes and captain's hat! This island town has it all for you sailor types. From boat tours to fishing expeditions to shark-watching trips, the marina at Manteo will not disappoint. Those less water-inclined can explore the parks and gardens of Roanoke Island. Summer guests will not want to miss The Lost Colony, the nation's oldest outdoor symphonic drama, depicting the island's tumultuous history. Other summer highlights include The New World Festival of the Arts, Pirate's Cove Billfish Tournament, and a 4th of July celebration and fireworks display.

    Water, water everywhere - don't forget to come up for air

    There's plenty to do and see in this small island town, especially if you're a fan of all things nautical. History buffs will want to visit the Roanoke Island Maritime Museum, the Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse, and the Outer Banks History Center. There's also Island Farm, which depicts life on the island in the 19th century. And everyone can discover their inner pirate at the North Carolina Aquarium and Roanoke Island Festival Park, a 25-acre site with a mockup of a 16th-century ship. Just try to to get seasick! Picnickers will delight in the town's many parks and Elizabethan garden.

    On this island, sunny and wet is what you'll get

    Don't forget your coat and hat, and maybe an umbrella too! Though the island has pleasant weather throughout the summer months, with highs in the mid-80s, rain is not uncommon. The weather changes frequently and, in typical Manteo quaintness, is reported by signal flags flying from a restored US Weather Bureau tower. Winter temperatures drop to the high 30s, though snow is infrequent. Planning a Manteo vacation rental for the middle of January would only be advised for those seeking a cold and wet experience, though the price would be right.

    Small town living surrounded by natural beauty

    Manteo sits on the picturesque Shallowbag Bay which opens up to the Roanoke Sound. The bay is ideal for fishing, boating, and swimming, though watch out for those pesky jellyfish. Nature lovers with a Manteo vacation rental will appreciate the numerous wildlife preserves in the area, among them: Nags Head Wood Preserve to the east, Roanoke Island Marshes to the south, and the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge to the west. To the north lies Kitty Hawk and the Wright Brothers National Memorial, a must-see for any aviation aficionado.
