    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: ( 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!

    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!

    Wow, sounds like you're on the right track! I've heard good things about Huntington. Of course, the Outer Banks -- and in particular Cape Hatteras and Ocracoke Island -- offers excellent camping. Further south, Little Talbot Island State Park in northeast Florida is worth a look. Lastly, check out Virginia's Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge, which offers an awesome hike-in route to False Cape State Park and primitive, beachside camping at Barbour Hill (look out for loggerhead sea turtles, who nest on the beach between May and September!).
