For the OBX check out the Wright Brothers museum/memorial, Jockey`s Ridge SP sand dune (HUGE), Lighthouses at Bodie Island and Cape Hatteras, and take a ferry to Ocracoke Island if time permits..

For Norfolk I recommend Nauticus including the battleship Wisconsin, Waterside which is a diverse collection of food and shops. Norfolk/Hampton roads traffic can be a pain, especially around tunnels, avoid rush hours if possible. A trip up I64 west to Jamestown/Yorktown/Williamsburg would be great also. And of course trip across the CBBT to the Eastern Shore and Kiptopeke SP would be a treat.

Bad for the campgrounds as well with the lost revenue. Looks like we will just get a glance from it here on the Va. shore, thankfully. All in harms way please be careful and stay safe.
I'm in Texas...the wife is a traveling nurse. As I type this...at 8:49pm Eastern time, the eyewall of this hurricane is about 50 miles from my house...and closing in. I'm sweating it.

This is a picture of the last time we stayed in OBX.I believe it was 2 years ago the summer after the Hatteras KOA was allready devastated from a storm the previous summer and they were just beginning to rebuild....
Just to let you know....after a bit of reflection about life and what to do with me and my 2 grand daughters...seems the funnel cloud dissapeared!!!!!!!

My home is near Cape Lookout. We came out ok. Lost some shingles, some siding, and a few boards off our dock. Much better than we expected and much better than the northern OBX did.
