NYC to Outer Banks and back in four days.

Jump to last reply

Hi all!

I'm thinking of taking a road trip from NYC to the Outer Banks (Ocracoke ultimately). I have 4 days and 3 nights.

I'm mostly after scenery and cool/interesting towns and places to visit along the way. I've never been to that part of the country so pretty much anything is fair game!

Should I take the Cape May - Lewes ferry or go around it? Is that pretty exciting or meh?

I'm thinking of driving along the coast on the way there and then going through Richmond/DC/Baltimore/Philly on the way back to make things more interesting -- is that a good idea?

What would be a good choice for midway points to stay the night, in both directions? By looking at the map I was thinking Lewes on the way there and then perhaps Richmond/DC coming back, but I'd actually prefer something off the beaten path.

Any other ideas on where to stop/sleep on either way?

thank you for any and all input!

PS. I'd be leaving next week! (fri, sat, sun, and back on monday evening)
