Outside power outlets quit working/dead.

I have a power outlet on front & back porches, both have stopped working though other outlets on same run still function.
What course of action is suggested? Replace outlets or some other testing device first.

Look for a tripped GFCI. It could be in the garage or basement.

Unlikely to be the same circuit, but the kitchen could also be where it is.

If the house is old enough it could be a bathroom as well. Look anyplace a receptacle is located near water.
