How Far Is It and How to Get There?

There are two ways to get to the Outer Banks - driving and flying. The closest international airport is in Norfolk, VA (ORF). After landing in Norfolk, you will then head south on NC-168 and US-158 where you will drive over the Wright Brothers Memorial Bridge. When you get to the road signs pointing to NC12 North, you will turn left. Continue on Hwy 12 North (also known as Ocean Trail) and you will get to the quaint town of Duck. (If you go further north, you will eventually get to Corolla. If you choose to go on NC 12 South, it will take you to the towns of Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills, and Nags Head.)

Continue through Downtown Duck, driving by a scenic neighborhood here and there on your left and right, then take a right on Sea Colony Drive (if you see the Sunset Grill restaurant, you've gone too far!) and follow that road to the end. This will get you to the wonderful resort community of Colony by the Sea.
