    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.

    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 (http://blogs.away.com/travel/2009/06/beach-bytes-tybee-island-georgia.html), which offers plenty affordable options. Another cool place might be Holden Beach (http://blogs.away.com/travel/2009/05/beach-bytes-holden-beach-north-carolina.html), perhaps a more affordable, charismatic alternative to Myrtle Beach. Congrats to you both!

    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.
