Driving from No.VA

Driving from No.VA

Can anyone suggest the best route for traveling the first week in August to Rodanthe? I was wondering if it would be better to go down 95 to Rocky Mount, NC then in 64 to Manteo? I would assume that the drive down 12 on a Saturday afternoon has to be pretty bad?

Thank you for the help

If you don't mind a boring drive, the I-95/64 route Rocky Mount to Manteo is clear sailing. You will still be on 12S for about 25 miles in order to reach Rodanthe. The 168/158 route to 12S has more to see and do.

Thank you RebelJohn, I dont mind boring, what i'm more concerned about is sitting in traffice with two kids! I have done the slow role up to Corolla before on a Saturday and was just trying to avoid that if possible. From Google it says it is an extra hour going the 95 route.

Thank you again for the input.
