I am planning to go on a vacation to the Outer Banks in July for 3 days.(this is our first vacation to the Outer Banks) I am unable get any vacation rental on the Outer Banks because they are either booked or will only rent for a week and not for a few days. Do you know if we could stay closer to the Outer Banks(up to an hour's drive will do) and then drive to the Outer Banks. Do you think it will work. How are the rents and what areas would that be. We are a group of 4 adults and 2 kids.
