Don't know much about rentals but my family goes to Duck every fall. We love it there. It is not as touristy as some of the places but you can drive to many interesting venues. We've also done the Ashville/Black Mountain area. The Biltmore mansion is there as well as Montreat (Billy Graham's home town). We've enjoyed them both. You won't be sorry which ever way you go!

In my experience, most rentals, other than motels, rent by the week in OBX and other ocean areas in NC. Prices drop drastically after school starts. During the season, you will probably need a reservation long in advance. NC has a lot to offer, including the mountain areas, especially the Ashville area with Biltmore. The botanical gardens are beautiful, especially if you are into Bonzai. I would skip Idaho and spend the two weeks in NC. Driving from Jersey down 81 and through the mountains is beautiful, but it is not a week trip if you plan to end up on the beach.

Bucky I have an idea... you can go to Cameron, N.C.
find Jeff Hardy and bring him to Ohio to see me.
That's my idea and it sounds like a good one to me !!

Now you are talking. Go to OBX in September after the kids go back to school. Prices are half, beaches are empty, and the weather is still good.

No kidding? That's your niece's restaurant? I was just there about 3 weeks ago. Right on the main drag, north side of the street?

Yep, that's the restaurant! It's good, isn't it? Time for a road trip! Well, about an hour or so...short road trip.
