    Your best bet is to fly from EWR to Norfolk International Airport, ORF. You can search for flight deals here: Norfolk International is 90 minutes north of the Outer Banks. Rent a car or take The Connection, a van service that will transport you from the airport to the Outer Banks. Contact The Connection at (252) 449-2777. Have a safe and pleasant trip!

    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.

Another cool place might be Holden Beach (, perhaps a more affordable, charismatic alternative to Myrtle Beach. Congrats to you both!
