Suggestions on where to stop on the way to OBX (from DE)

Hello-

We will be traveling to OBX and staying there from Saturday to Tuesday.

We were going to leave on Friday. Does anyone have suggestions of where to stop on the way?

Is it worth it to spend the night in VA Beach for the night?

Or just do a quick stop in Chesapeake and then OBX.

We are looking for something to break up the ride.

Leaving from Delaware.

Thanks!

I would suggest the Chesapeake Greenbrier area. An easy off/on and just a couple miles to the bypass. Many choices of hotels, restaurants, and shopping if needed.

Jessica, There are plenty of name brand hotels to stay in near the bridge/tunnel. We have stayed on both sides and do not have a preference. I do suggest that you take Rt 113 instead of Rt 13. It will be faster and there are less small town cops. LynnVB can provide you with the attributes that VA Beach has to offer, but I would say that VA Beach reminds me of OCMD. The Chesapeake side is very quiet.

We use to spend the night in Va beach then in the morning go to Knots Island and take the ferry to Currytuck. Just adds to the adventure of getting there The ferry is about an hour from the Resort area of Va beach.
