    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!

    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.

    I lived there for 4 years and favorite time of the year was off season. Typically "the season" would end after Labor Day. Temps are still nice. I personally love the beach in the mid/late fall,winter,and spring (before Memorial Day)quiet and peaceful. Enjoy your trip when you go!
