This will be our first trip to Carolinas. We have two weeks starting and finishing in Charlotte. We plan to drive south along the coast and north through the mountains. We like undeveloped coastline rather than a series of shops and condos so the outer banks sounds ideal. Is it sensible to take just one day to drive from Kitty Hawk to Beaufort using highway 12 and ferries? If so where should we stop along the way? Main interests nature, scenery, photography and history.
