There is something to be said for the southern beaches of the Outer Banks. The rustic unspoiled feel and the sense that when you "drive" out onto the beach, you own that little plot where your vehicle is parked. Though many times I see "out of town" visitors stuck in the sand, either because they try to take their Honda Civic onto the sand, or they have the big SUV dug deep up to the wheel axles.
A few important tips:
- minimum AWD transmission system required
- carry a small shovel in the back of vehicle
- air tires down to 20psi
- depending on ground clearance of vehicle, dictates whether to drive in existing tracks
- do not spin tires
- do not forget beach umbrella, chairs, and cooler!
