It is the time of the year I will be getting questions about beach driving and permits. So I might as well cover the subject early.
To begin with, take your tires down to 25 lbs. You can drive in Corolla north and south of the gate in off season, only north in season starting May 1st. You cannot drive in Kitty Hawk or Southern Shores at anytime. The Nags Head permit and the Kill Devil Hills permit has been combined into one. When you purchase a Nags Head Beach Permit, it will also include Kill Devil Hills. The cost remains at $25.00. They can be purchase from Nags Head Town Office or TW’s Tackle in Nags Head. The permit is good from Oct 1st to May. You can drive our National Parks if you have a permit. A yearly permit is $120.00 and weekly is $50.00.
