Manteo is one of the oldest communities in the state of North Carolina, and the country. Founded and settled in the 1580s, the area was the site of the first English child born in America, Virginia Dare, as well as one of the first English settlements in the New World. The town of Manteo is nothing short of a great experience and an old town feel. From the Maritime museum to the waterfront enjoy local shops, waterfront views and other stuff. See their webcam to check out what's going on live on the waterfront.
