The Flying Catnap is within easy driving distance of Washington, DC, Richmond, VA, Charlotte, NC, Columbia, SC, and Augusta, GA as this map shows. The roads to the area, which includes Beaufort and Morehead City, are excellent.
Its exact position is on Bogue Banks, one of the barrier islands just off the North Carolina mainland. Bogue Banks is a bit south of Cape Hatteras. The Banks, as it’s called, is a part of the group of barrier islands that are often called “The Crystal Coast” or “The Southern Outer Banks.” That’s where those SOBX stickers come from.
Bogue Banks actually runs from east to west because of the way the North Carolina coast is shaped.
It’s very close to Beaufort, NC, and Morehead City, NC. Other “near neigbors” include the Marine Corps Air Station at Cherry Point and Camp Lejeune.
