Outer Banks trip

The wife and I are thinking about a 3-4 day trip to the Outer Banks and would like to get some info about driving on the beach, clean mom and pops style hotels, and restaurants. And any info on things to do in the area. TIA.

Driving on The Beach - North Carolina Beach Driving & Off-Road Vehicles - The Outer Banks - North Carolina
Outerbanks.org has tons of info on everything.
I've stayed at Shutters on the Banks Motel in Kill Devil Hills. Was pretty nice for a motel. also, Hampton Inn&suites Corolla. This is closer to the beach.
Favorite Restaurant: The Black Pelican.
Carova beach is fun. I've gone with and without lowering tire pressure. never had a problem. And it gets busy especially in summer, but checking out everyones ride is half the fun.

We just got back from Corova last Saturday. We had a great time! The house we rented was 6 miles up the beach, no permit needed there. I would highly suggest airing down. There were a lot of people stuck with 4x4s. An old Cherokee Chief and I hooked up to a big RAM 1500 and pulled him out. He then pulled out an even bigger Chevy pickup that the two of us couldn't budge.Also there were tons of people who thought their AWD SUVs would be good in the sand. If you ride near the waterline, its hard as cement, but the other travel "lanes" are rutted powdery sand. funny thing was watching construction equipment and garbage trucks rolling on the beach!

Hey guys not to thread jack but looking for a little guidance. I'm down here in Duck now, without my jeep,(face palm, fail) from the locals what are your thoughts on taking a 1 ton dually on the beach? I have a huge itch to go for it but I know if I get stuck it's going to be a bitch to get out. Next year my jeep will be in tow. Any advice?

Me and my wife going in September for 3-4days gonna hit the beach hard and fish. Always go with the annual permit for driving. The week pass was $50 last year and a waste.

Basically $50 for 7 consecutive days. $120 for a year. Unless your a onetime visit yeah do the $50. I go multiple times a year and if you plan on more visits in 365 days then save some $.
