We were excited to start our American history road trip here - with the Lost Colony. The visitor center may look dated on the outside but there’s a beautiful interactive exhibit room about Sir Walter Raleigh and Queen Elizabeth. They offer a short informative video which was good for getting the details of what happened on the site, but it had some violent scenes that might disturb little ones. They also exhibit some of the archaeological finds.

The site itself was small, but there were trails to explore which we skipped. The biggest surprise for us was the large amphitheater on the water. Beautiful view, and I wish we had purchased tickets to the evening performance there.

We went to the historic site right as they opened, then headed into Manteo for lunch. Manteo is a great spot for more exploration.
