Where would you cruise to from NC for a week?

I live in Charlotte, NC and I have about 5-6 days to go sailing coming up soon. Where would you go? Boat is a 23 foot Spirit that is a pretty sea worthy trailerable. I have coastal safety gear (except an EPIRB or PLB although I will get one if I have to) but would be going by myself. I'm young-ish and in good shape, yada, yada.

1. For an easier trip, I was thinking drive over to New Bern and go from there to maybe Oriental down the ICW to Morehead City, maybe try to go to Shackleford banks to see the ponies and head back. Pretty safe trip but could be fun. Plenty of places to stop but not sure how the sailing would be up the Neuse River.

2. Something else around Albemarle or Pamlico Sound? Any suggestions?

3. Or go for broke since this may be the only free week I have this year and go to Florida and sail the gulf or to the keys. For that I would almost certainly get a PLB for security.

Any thoughts?
