What a great site! Thanks! Looking ahead to August 2012..Planning on visiting the OBX with 2-3 other couples and a total of about 5 boys, ages 9-12. Wondering if you can help guide us to a location, since each town seems to have its own 'feel'. Coming from PA, so want to stay as close to the direct route as possible, but our wish list includes: Beach (of course!) but lots of other things to do to keep the boys and ourselves busy, such as: crabbing, nature trails/boat tours, fishing, water sports such as kayaking or paddleboard lessons, and any other cool museums/places of interest for that age group. A decent restaurant or two would be great, but obviously night life is not a priority ;) ! THANKS SO MUCH IN ADVANCE!!!
