Avoid Summer Saturday Traffic With These Helpful Tips.

On Saturdays during the summer, getting to the Outer Banks from the north can be challenging. The reason is the majority of our visitors stay in weekly rental homes and choose to begin (and end) their vacations on Saturdays. That means a lot of visitors, and workers, coming and going on Saturdays between 9am and 6pm.

Here are some suggestions to avoid the traffic and get to the Outer Banks faster!

1. Consider starting your vacation on a day other than Saturday.

Many property management companies offer week stays that begin (and end) on Friday or Sunday. Coming and going on those days can mean at least 30% less traffic and a much faster, less stressful arrival/departure.

2. Consider an alternate route.

Particularly for visitors staying in OBX towns & villages south of Southern Shores (i.e. Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills, Nags Head, Manteo, Rodanthe, Waves, Salvo, Avon, Buxton, Frisco and Hatteras Village), an alternate route can save several hours. Even if the route means more miles, you’ll be moving at a good speed instead of stuck in traffic.
