Virginia Beach, Virginia and Outer Banks, North Carolina

For our 3rd Anniversary, Kevin and I took an incredible week vacation spending time in four states: Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia. I am going through all the highlights this week. Enjoy!

After completing the Blue Ridge Parkway, we stayed in Roanoke for one night. Nothing there but a hotel bed. Then we headed over to VA Beach. VA Beach has a busy boardwalk kind of like the Venice Beach of the East Coast. But the people are VASTLY DIFFERENT (for the better...sorry, not sorry!). We ate at a waterfront restaurant (Waterman's Surfside Grille) and enjoyed a walk on the beach and boardwalk. 

The next day we went to the Outer Banks. Now this is where we miss-planned time. We were really rushed to get from the top to the bottom to catch a ferry back to the mainland where our hotel was.

We loved seeing two of the lighthouses. We ran out of time to climb any of them though. :-(

We went to Jockey's Ridge State Park to see the sand dunes. It was a still day so no one really had kites out or anything, but it was a pretty site to see still. For me having had White Sands National Monument in my backyard growing up, it doesn't hold a torch to it.

We also did the Wright Brothers Museum. Lots of history. But truth be told, I don't think any one from the State Parks there has been to Arizona. Reason being is there were signs and it was announced that you go out into the grassy areas at your own risk because there are Prickly Pear Cactus. Kevin and I could not find a single one. Maybe they meant dandelion?

Haha still fun all the same!

Had we had more time I would have spent more time doing beachy things. Hang gliding, swimming, etc...

Morehead City was were we spent our Anniversary night in a new boutique hotel, Bask. We then went out to a really nice dinner at Blue Moon Bistro. It was a very nice restaurant for I am sure many people who needed a place to be after being on the Outer Banks.

Bad picture warning ahead (sorry)

After this we headed to Charleston which was my favorite part of the trip!
Truth be told, all of my life growing up we never traveled, let alone, took a road trip. This was a pretty new experience for me. 

Have you ever done a crazy road trip before?
