Hi! I am traveling with my family, (husband, 3 kids and mother) to the OBX (Duck) from Maryland. We would like to stop for the night right outside of the OBX and continue traveling the next day with the intention of only having an hour or two left.
While often a great option for road trips, we are looking for something different than the typical lot of hotels (Marriott, Hampton Inns) right off the highway next to a convenient store or chain restaurant. We are looking for something a little more quaint. It can be no frills, but ideally looking for a hotel in a little town we could explore and a nearby restaurant so we can make a afternoon/night out of it before we travel the next day. Maybe no such thing exists, but thought it was worth a short.
Thanks for any suggestions.
