    very easy. Take Rt 9 from the ferry towards Georgetown to Rt 13. Rt 13 will take you all the way down over the bay bridge.

    google maps this correctly.

    I actually would take 113. It bypasses a chunk of 13 that has a ton of lights and speed traps (55 to 35). I took it by accident last year coming home from VA beach and was glad i did. The southern half has no lights whatsoever.

    Secret Route?

    A secret route!? Impossible there is only one road down through delmarva Rt. 13, take 113 to bypass Salisbury and all the speed traps and crap. Once you get out of Md into Va it gets pretty odd pretty fast dont count on much scenery or stopping anywhere. Its like traveling back 50 yrs in time, most rural backass place on the east coast.

    well,now i have a decision to make.
    why would micah say 9-13 if the 9-1-24-113-13 route is better?
    i go to hatteras on 13 all the time but that's from the bridge,not the ferry.
    i need the fastest route from the ferry.
    what about 1-50-113-13?

    Rt 9 - 13 use salisbury bypass

    Get off the ferry, to your left is cape henlopen state park make a right then your next left on 9 south, take that to either 113 or 13. Its just a preference thing almost. 113 takes you a little bit more out of the way hugs the coast almost, but has less lights and less time on route 9. If you take 13 make sure the use the bypass around salisbury, dont take business 13 itll just slow you down and add like 45min to an hr on your drive with traffic lights and ridic. slow speed limits for a highway. I lived in delmarva for four years for school and I would constantly complain about the ridic. slow ass speed limits. Rt. 50 to OC is 50 mph, even though you are driving through miles of cow sh*t and soybean farms

    Micah was correct to begin with. 9 west to 13 south is the best way, provided you take the salisbury bypass.

    9-113-13 will take a few minutes longer IMO but would be OK
    1-50-113-13 would take you through a bunch of beach towns with lights and is nuts.
