I am not sure where there is that south. If you want to go to Corolla, you just follow the main road til it ends.

I'm in Atlanta, I don't know how far I am from the Carolina beaches.

I'm driving up to Davidson this Friday (20 minutes north of Charlotte), and Mapquest is telling me 4 hours 18 minutes. Can you figure out approximate time to the beaches?

BTW, if you're in Myrtle Beach, you should come down and run some of the north Georgia trails with us!

Where in GA are you? I'm on a college students budget so I cant travel too far. What kind of trails do you have? Beach or mountains?

6.5 hours from here to Myrtle Beach is longer than I was thinking.

But, it turns out I was thinking about HHI, because that's only 4.5 hours from here.

Is there anywhere in Hilton Head or SC for that matter, to legally drive on the beach?

MattStarr, good to see another Virginia Beacher on the boards! There are tons upon tons of miles to drive on the sand down in the Outer Banks. Here is my rundown (i have done everybit of milage from VA/NC border to Hatteras:

VA/NC border to Corolla
Oregon Inlet (south of Nags Head)
Salvo to Avon on Hatteras Island
Avon to Buxton
Around the point from Buxton to Frisco Village
All around Hatteras Village to Hatteras Inlet
Cross the ferry to Ocracoke and that is all open as well

Thats my run down, go check them out...

Then there is always Okracoke Island. Quick ferry trip out. Last time I was there (prolly 10 years ago), you could drive on the beaches.

Hey, Matt, have you ever heard of a place called Ocracoke? I hear some guys actually call it Okracoke too, but yeah, have you ever heard of it?

:p :p :p

Yeah, thats a little farther North..... I'm looking for more places South of Wilmington. I have only found two beaches so far where you can legally drive.
