Well, a lot depends on which part of the ocean you are trying to get to. To the Pamlico Sound region from Greenville is less than 50 miles. Probably more like 30 or so. That would be in the northeastern part of the state. Now if you go to Wrightsville Beach near Wilmington, you are talking about a good 2- 2 1/4 hour drive and at least 110 miles if not slightly further. To Morehead City from Greenville is slightly less than to Wilmington. And I live about 20 miles from Greenville so I would go to Kinston to get to Morehead City and hit 70 E and it would take about 2 hours to get there. Greenville people probably hit Hwy 11 to Kinston and then 70 E to Morehead and Greenville is about 30 miles from Kinston. To Wrightsville Beach, we go to Goldsboro and hit 117 to Faison and Mt. Olive. 40 E picks up there and then we go to Wilmington and then to Wrightsville Beach. 40 seems to flow better than 70 for some reason. And that takes about 2 hours from Snow Hill, NC. Like I said, Greenville is about 20 miles NE of Snow Hill. I am not totally sure how people in Greenville go to Wilmington and I am sure with all the back roads and all 10 people that live in the area probably go 10 different ways. But it is most rural areas until you get to Wilmington or Morehead City either for that matter. New Bern is on Hwy 70 E to Morehead City as well.
