Default Virginia Beach to Savannah via Outerbanks

Hi, its that time again to hit the road for another extended holiday, time to knock another tick off of the bucket list, weve heard wonderful things about the Outerbanks, so were going to give it a try, starting up in Virginia Beach and working our way south as far as Savannah Georgia, then heading back home, Just wanted to ask if anyone here has done it, and if so, are there any special stops you would recommend, either campgrounds, boondocking spots, or any special sites to see, beaches, great food stops ,etc….appreciate all feedback as always,, thank you ,,,,see you soon,,,

Well, to state the obvious, be sure to stop at the Wright Brothers National Historic Site at Kitty Hawk.

The First Landing state Park in Virginia Beach is nice. Right on the Bay with beaches.

Cape Hatteras Light House, and Ocracoke National Park. You will very likely require reservations for Ocracoke N.P. and for the ferries taking you back to mainland at the South end of the Outer Banks.

First question: What are you driving/towing or sleeping in? 2nd question: When are you hitting the banks? Lived on Cape Hatteras for 20 years and can answer many of your questions, also worked on Ocracoke. Ferry system can be challenging for big rigs. Hatteras to Ocracoke was first come, first served when I left 2 years ago. Ferry from Ocracoke to Cedar Island required reservations (2+hour trip). Could experience long lines at the Hatteras side. Also depends on current weather, water level at the ferry dock and road conditions from south of the oregon inlet bridge. Only Walmart is in Kitty Hawk and when I was there, they had no overnight parking signs posted in their lot. Don't think that you will find boondocking sites along the OBX. Two NP campgrounds in the Buxton/Frisco area. The one in Buxton was prone to flooding and mosquitoes. The one in Frisco is nice and on higher ground. 2 years ago, neither had electric sites and only offered cold water showers. So, what are you driving and when will you be there?

Note that there is a State Park right next to Ocracoke N.P. It is sometimes easier to get into. They also have hookups, which the N.P. doesn't, IIRC.

One thing to note is that the busiest travel days from West of Virginia Beach down to the OBX is Saturday, followed by Sunday. The busiest camping days are usually Thursday through Sunday. The reason Saturday is a busy travel day (and commute day to Ocracoke) is that the majority of visitors rent houses for the week and the turnover days are Sat and Sun, with more than half changing on Saturday. Traditionally, the Island is the busiest the week before, including, and the week after the 4th of July.
