Fort Raleigh - Manteo, NC

Fit for a Queen!

Hi! While we were on our trip, we also went to Fort Raleigh. It was right beside The Lost Colony Play.

We got to see some tools the colonists used, some pots that the Indians used and other artifacts. There was also some dishes, a model of the Elizabeth II and the Elizabethan Room. It had great furniture and an amazing ceiling fit for a Queen. I had a great time.

We didn't get a chance to walk out on the forest trail, but what we saw of the visitors center was great. Don't miss going there if you get to go to Manteo!

MORE NOTES FROM MOM...

I wish we had more time to explore the trail of Fort Raleigh. Jessica liked the vistors center and had very detailed information which she loves to read. They also had a wall dedicated to The Lost Colony Outdoor Drama that gave information about how it all started and followed it through the years. We will definatley go back to walk the trails and see the Elizabethan Gardens, I hear they are incredible.
