|Transportation / Accommodations
Driving and flying are both great options. By plane, the closest airport is Norfolk, VA (after you arrive, rent a car and drive yourself down the coast to finish the trip). Other airport options are PHF (Newport News, VA) or RDU (Raleigh, NC).

As far as lodging goes, there are a couple of places we highly recommend, and here are their links:
The Villas at Koru Village– nice 2 or 3 bedroom condos, very reasonably priced with a fall season special (buy 5 nights, get one free) during our event
The Lighthouse View Motel– your standard hotel, centrally located in Buxton, NC-
Outer Beaches Realty– rent a house for the week from these guys…anywhere from 1 to 10 bedroom houses available in a wide price range, and a good deal for the week since technically September is part of the shoulder-season in the Outer Banks. Most competitors stay in the town of Avon.
