Best Family Vacation Resort

loramooreApril 1, 2008

Where/what is your favorite family resort?

We have 2 kids, they will be 5 and 8 when we go on vacation this Summer. We were thinking about going to Smugglers Notch in VT but I think we decided to go to the beach instead.

Does anyone have any suggestions on a beach resort in North or South Carolina?

Thanks for the help!

There are plenty of good beaches in North Carolina. It all depends on what you like and what your budget is. Amusements? Golf? Quiet? Shopping? Nature? Boating? If you are a AAA member, order or pick up their Tourbook for the Carolinas. There are probably NC tourism sites online, too.

We have been to Duck in the Outer Banks, NC and Myrtle Beach (Garden City area) in SC. Outer Banks wasn't for us as there isn't much to do there except for the beach, lighthouses to visit and Kitty Hawk with the Wrights' Brothers Museum. The museum is very small. The Outer Banks are relaxing and peaceful. Myrtle Beach has a lot to do that my family enjoys. There is a huge mall, a boardwalk with little shops and restaurants, movies, miniature golf, golf, theater, water sports, and the beach. In summary, Outer Banks for a peaceful-type vacation, Myrtle Beach for a more active-type vacation.

Thanks for the tips ladies! I think we have decided on Atlantic Beach, NC. Sounds like Atlantic Beach is in between the Outer Banks type and the Myrtle Beach type vacation spot. :)
