Airports

Raleigh/Durham/Cary (RDU) (Southwest Hub)
Greensboro/Winston-Salem (GSO)
Wilmington (ILM)

Based on the schedule, it is easiest to fly in and out of Raleigh airport, as it is the largest, and a hub for Southwest. Drive time between our markets is as follows:

GSO and RDU — 1.5 hours
RDU and ILM — 2 hours
GSO and ILM — 3.5 hours

Most visitors do not get a rental car. We can certainly arrange transportation within markets, as well as between markets. Just let us know your preference.
