8) Outer Banks, North Carolina
The Outer Banks is another affordable option, if you do it right. The beaches attract the most visitors in the summer months of June, July and August, so skip those. March through May or September through November will deliver a combination of lower prices and, for the most part, not too chilly weather. There are a multitude of lodging options. You may find that renting a cottage or house is cheaper option than a hotel room, especially since you will have access to a kitchen. Camping is another possibility. The wide selection of restaurants also means visitors have the choice of pricier seafood sit-downs or casual sandwich shops. There isn’t much public transportation to be had, so if you can’t drive there, you will likely need to rent a car at the closest airport, which is 120 miles away. You may, however, be treated to the majesty of the wild horses known to roam the area.
