Roanoke Island and historic downtown Manteo has turned into one of the hottest micro - markets in this long skinny Island paradise we call the Outer Banks.
I predict Manteo to be one of the HOTTEST areas when baby boomers begin to really retire en-mass. Colingotn Harbor will be another hot spot to look for . The Historic Manteo waterfront wiil be the draw with all of the little shops , studious , the Theater , restaurants and coffe houses.
Jump across to festival park for concerts and you can get your museum fix while you are there.
This still leaves the Lost Colony and Elizabethan Gardens to visit and you can enjoy the gardens all year round. If you want to really enjoy Coastal living at its best you can be in the sound pulling out a rickfish within 5 minutes of almost anywhere on Roanoke Island. If you want to go offshore then you have plenty of Local Charters - they will have you hooked up in no time.
Come visit me in Manteo or at Cedar Bay on the west side of Dwontown Manteo. www.cedarbaync.com
