We have property in KDH and make the trip from NJ several times a year.

Directions to the NC Outer Banks:

You can use EZ Pass in NJ, Delaware Bridge, Route 1 (Del), Chesapeake Bridge Tunnel and the bypass that takes you around Chesapeake, VA into NC


New Jersey Turnpike South or Route 295 South to the end.

Go over the Delaware Bridge and follow to Route 95 South—You’ll only be on Route 95 for a short period. After you pay the toll at the Bridge stay in the far left lane and you will not have to change lanes until you reach Route 95

It is a heavy merge (you’ll be merging from the left) onto Route 95 South (2 or 3 lanes from each direction) merging to 5 lanes—so once you get on Route 95 South --get over to your right as soon as you can-

Get off at Exit 4A—It is the first exit you will see—(Actually, Exit 4B is first and Exit 4A is after) Look for Christiana Mall Rd and Route 1 South -- Route 1 is a bypass highway that will take you around Wilmington, Smyrna, and Dover

Stay on Route 1— Route 1 ends after Dover (Dover AFB on left) and it merges onto Route 113 and will become Route 1/113.

After Milford, Route 1 will go to the left to the Maryland Beaches and Route 113 South will go right. Follow Route 113 South

Route 113 will end at Pokomoke City, Maryland and you will pick up Route 13 South. (Turn left onto Route 13 South)---When you’re on Route 13 in Maryland and the Virginia Eastern Shore and later in NC you’ll go through several small towns and traffic lights where the speed limit drops. You have been warned!

Take Route 13 South through the Maryland and the Virginia Eastern Shore—Go across the
The Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel - and Stay on Route 13 until Route 64 East. It is a right exit, two lane exit. Stay in the left exit lane. Route 64 East will go to the left.

Once on Route 64 East--Look for signs to the Outer Banks or Manteo, NC.

Take exit 291B for Nags Head and Manteo

At this point just follow the signs to Outer Banks,or Manteo, NC. or Elizabeth City, NC you’ll be on Route 168-----and at some point in North Carolina…around Elizabeth City… Route 168 will become Route 158. (Same road, new name)

It is about 1-3/4 hours from the end of the Bay-Bridge Tunnel to the causeway that takes you to the Outer Banks.

Once over the Sound, take the by-pass (Route 12) North to Duck and Corrollaor South to Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills, Nags Head and Cape Hatteras

Did this drive many times with grandchildren who are young. Your best bet is to go on a FRIDAY and spend the night somewhere around Norfolk/Hampton roads/ and then leave AM Saturday EARLY like everyone said - in the summer you can sit from Grandy(?) till over the bridge for a good two hours. Believe me, I know!!!
