    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!

    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.

    Where to stay in OBX?

    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: (http://www.resortrealty.com/index.htm) 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!
