Manteo Preservation Trust's Holiday Tour of Homes

Manteo Preservation Trust is a group dedicated to bringing awareness to the public of the cultural, architectural and historic heritage of Roanoke Island. Every year its central fundraiser is the Holiday Tour of Homes, during which homes and other structures on the island are beautifully decorated and open to tour. The tour route is usually easily walkable, and a local bike shop also donates bikes for those who might want to go from place to place on wheels. Light refreshments are served where the tour begins. This is a ticketed event, and the price typically is $20. People come from far afield for this popular event that's always held the first Saturday in December.
