Manteo to Norfolk

Take the ferry across the Elizabeth River to the historic naval seaport of Portsmouth. The Olde Towne Historic District is just one block from the waterfront yet years away. Want to complete some early Christmas shopping? Discover a unique collection of fine antique shops, artist run galleries and one-of-a-kind specialty stores. If it’s the first Saturday of the month, visit the Antiques to Flea Market offering an eclectic collection of unique and antique wares from more than 70 vendors. Afterwards, take in dinner and a movie at the Art Deco-style Commodore Theater, recognized by Motion Picture Association of America as one of the “10 greatest dine-in theaters in America.” The theater originally opened its doors in 1945 and presents first run films and fine dining. Enjoy your nighttime return trip to Norfolk on the ferry, which runs until 9:30 p.m. on weekdays and until 11:00 p.m. on weekends in the off-season.
