    • A place to freshen up

      Asheville Oct 18, 2016 at 11:53 AM

      I am planning a surprise party that will have separate groups coming from different parts of the country arriving on the same day. Sleeping accommodations are taken care of but having them arrive there before the party would ruin the surprise. Is there a good place the parties could meet mid to late afternoon and freshen up after their travels?

    • Beach Access

      by KellyD32 Online Now Apr 2, 2014 at 4:11 AM

      It looks like our rental is closet to the Curlew Beach Access mp 11.8 (2 blocks from beach access, Memorial Ave.). I see this access has a water fall pipe and is about 6 houses down from the pier. Does anyone have any experience w/ area? I didn't realize the beach location until after renting the house for June. I was wondering if I should seek other accesses such as E. Hollowell St. and drive instead of the short walk to the beach? I am quite disappointed in finding this news out:( Advice would be appreciated.

    • Handicap Access and great restaurants...

      by ReenK Online Now Sep 6, 2013 at 10:50 AM

      We're going to be visiting later this month... my sweetie is in a wheelchair and part of the appeal for Nags Head was the accessibility to the beach for him. Any suggestions of other H/C friendly activities.

      He also loves to eat WELL... seafood is a must while there... recommendations that are maybe off the beaten path?

      Getting to Nags Head from New York City

      by jimirving Online Now Mar 1, 2012 at 12:55 PM


      Can anyone give me suggestions and options to get from New York to Nags Head with driving NOT an option.

      I believe you can fly to an airport somewhere relatively nearby ? What about a coach and is the train an option ?

    • Where in the Outer Banks should we visit??

      by lbaz95 Online Now Aug 25, 2011 at 11:08 AM


      My husband and I are planning a getaway from our kids for 4-5 days in mid-October. We have never been to OBX and are thinking of going there. We like to shop (unique shops, not national chains), bike, and eat. Where in the OBX would you recommend? We are thinking that it will also give us a chance to investigate whether it is a good place for a family vacation next summer. We were leaning toward Duck or Nags Head.

      First Timer General advice

      by jimkpa Online Now Apr 5, 2007 at 1:01 PM

      We will be coming there in mid July for 3-4 days. I am checking out a few motels that have direct beach access. I see that there is Nags Head and then there is Kill Devil and Kitty Hawk towns. Which area is best to visit if we want nice shoreline, small shop type of shopping, not outlet malls, family things ? Family consists of 6 , me, wife, two teen daughters and two 5 yr old boys.

      Thanks for the info on the differences between these areas.

    • Driving to Nags Head

      by wvkaty Online Now Jun 4, 2006 at 4:57 AM

      Our family is going to Nags head this summer and we will be driving from the north. In years past we used I-95 to I-64 to get to Norfolk but the traffic is pretty thick. Is Rt 17 (from Fredricksburg to Norfolk) or some other route a better alternative to get to Norfolk and then to Nags Head?
