Wright Brothers Memorial Waves Fee for 3 Summer Weekends!

If you're traveling to the Outer Banks this summer, you might get lucky enough to arrive during one of 3 fee-free weekends at The Wright Brothers National Memorial! In an effort to help families planning budget-friendly Outer Banks vacations, the park is waiving the entrance fee for the weekends of June 20-21, July 18-19 and August 15-16. "During these tough economic times, our national parks provide opportunities for affordable vacations for families", stated Ken Salazar, Department of Interior Secretary.

Waterside Theater

During the summer, the Waterside Theater in Manteo has several activities for the family. Last year, my niece and I really enjoyed their production of Sleeping Beauty and having brunch with the cast afterwards. The play was not at all what either of us expected, but it was really exciting (it was a modernized, musical adaptation of Sleeping Beauty not the traditional story)!
