if i leave from surf city nc which outer bank island is closest?
I'm going to Surf City NC in June and would like to spend one day on one of the Outer Banks islands. What's the fastest way to get there, and which one is best when traveling with children?

Technically, the southernmost community on the Outer Banks is Hatteras, which you can access from the mainland via Ocracoke Island. The Cedar Island-Ocracoke ferry is probably closest for you (sailings also leave from Swan Quarter a little further north). Although not technically part of the Outer Banks, Cape Lookout National Seashore might be another spot worth checking out, as it's a little closer and easier to access from Surf City.
