The Outer Banks, NC may be a very narrow stretch of islands west of mainland North Carolina and Virginia, but you can pack a lot into to one seaside trip. Whether you want to attend a destination wedding, enjoy a weekend of fly fishing, or just look forward to a quiet day at the beach, an Outer Banks car rental will treat you to the best ocean views on four wheels, from Kitty Hawk to Buxton. Book cheap flights to the Outer Banks via Norfolk International Airport (ORF) and you’ll be sipping local yaupon holly tea in no time.
Fly into Norfolk and snag some vacation wheels at the airport for the 83-mile drive south to Kill Devil Hills and start your island tour with a photo op at the Wright Brothers National Memorial. Alternatively, you can ride a ferry from Currituck to Knotts Island to pick up a rental car in the Outer Banks and cruise down the coastline with the windows open. With 200 miles of beaches, you can shake out your towel for a seaside picnic practically anywhere. Ready to get up and check out the culture? Make your own art at local studios in Avon, get to know the four-hoofed residents at the Wild Horse Museum in Corolla, and learn about the region’s heritage at the Frisco Native American Museum in Frisco. Although Duck is the only town without public beach access, it offers ample fine dining and boardwalk shopping to make up for it.
This collection of islands and peninsulas has some of the best beaches in the U.S., so match that easygoing Atlantic breeze with classic car rentals in Outer Banks.
