Williamsburg and Outer Banks---does combining the two make ANY sense???!!

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning an 8-10 day getaway in early October and are thinking of doing both Williamsburg VA and North Carolina's Outer Banks. We'd fly to Norfolk and probably head to Williamsburg for 2-3 days then head to the OB for the reminder of the time, eventually heading back to Norfolk for the trip home to Boston.

We know these are diverse locations but figure we like history and beaches and this way we combine the two. For those familar with either area or both, are the distances doable (they seem to be but reality is often different.) Is there any alternative airport for the flight in or out so we don't have to return to Norfolk? any general thoughts or comments greatly appreciated.

PS--we're aware of hurricane season and figure we'll just keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best.
