    From Nashville, Kay, I think you should head southeast through Chattanooga and Atlanta to the Georgia, Florida, or South Carolina coast towns. Loads of choices there, including laidback Tybee Island (, which offers plenty affordable options. Another cool place might be Holden Beach (, perhaps a more affordable, charismatic alternative to Myrtle Beach. Congrats to you both!

    Head to Kill Devil Hills or Nags Head to be closer to more of the major amenities, plus a wider range of affordable lodging. Duck and Corolla to the north of Kill Devil Hills are a little more secluded with some more spectacular beachside properties, though of course, you'll pay a little more for these.

    First think about where you want to stay... we stay in Duck, a small town on the Northern half with good waves but not much else. Kitty Hawk and Nag's Head to the south are larger. Corolla is the farthest north and has a grocery store (and BrewThru!) We rent through these guys: ( but there are plenty of options. Most rentals are pet-friendly but charge a ~$150 pet fee. But the best part? The beaches in Duck are pet friendly and allow the dogs off-leash, all the time!
