Ferry to North Beachs...Duck? Looks like drive South to 158?

Do you really need to drive all the way South then 2 1/2 hours North if you are coming from NYC?

The drive up NC 12 from US 158 isn't 2 1/2 hours, even on the worst traffic days. It's only 20 miles from Kitty Hawk to the most northern part of Corolla, and the speed limit varies from 45 to 25 in the town of Duck.

The drive up rt 12 from Kitty Hawk is slow but not 2 hours. On a Saturday in summer that 20 miles will take about 45 min.
