This 138-Mile Drive Is the Best Way to See North Carolina’s Stunning Coast

We all dream of packing up the car and driving away. It could be a great excursion across the U.S. or even just leaving without warning for a long weekend trip away. North Carolina is home to so many beautiful drives that ignite and fulfill the need to escape and see more. While there’s the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Outer Banks Scenic Byway takes you on an unforgettable journey down the coast with must-see stops along the way.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
