transportation suggestions from nyc to ocracoke
Posted July 12th, 2011 - 3:58 pm by from Brooklyn, United States (Permalink)
Hey all,
My boyfriend and I are planning to vacation in Ocracoke in August. We went two years ago, and absolutely loved it! We are looking for inexpensive(ish) and creative ways to get down there from NYC. We don't have a car so we are looking into amtrak/rental options. car rentals from NYC are twice the price as most other places so we are trying to be creative.... any thoughts or ideas?? Does anyone know if there are any buses that would bring us close to one of the ferry ports?

Hey Mary. Ocracoke is so awesome in August, Im actually planing a trip there around September. The cheapest way I know to come close to here from New York is the ChinaTown bus http://www.chinatown-bus.org/ It doesn't go all the way down to Okracoke, but it does come to Norfolk, Virginia, which is 2.5 hours away maybe, and its only 35 bucks. From there you could then rent a car. kinda all I got...good luck tho!!
