Where do you suggest we stay to keep five teenagers entertained for a week?

None are of driving age so we can't send them out on their own. Just looking for the town that has the most entertainment or nearby shopping, mini golf etc. This is our first trip.

Towns for Teens ...
by: Dan

As soon as I saw "shopping", I assumed these teenagers are mostly girls (basing this on my two daughters vs my one son and what they each view as "fun to do"). If that is the case, then I would suggest any town NORTH of Nags Head, as all of them have shopping, mini-golf and various things for the teens to do and all within walking distance.

The Outlets are in Nags Head, but all of the towns have great small shops as well with a lot of variety (not just your standard tee shirt faire). Duck, for instance, has shopping centers on both sides of RT 12 that will accomodate shopping of most any desire, from Scarsborough Faire to several other shops that feature a variety of different items (art, antiques, etc.). Corolla also has a variety of shopping centers, the largest probably being Tim Buck II, which also has an entertainment center (go-carts, etc.) in the back of the shopping center. Kill Devil Hills, Kitty Hawk and Nags Head also have the stores and miniature golf.

If it is predominately boys, and they like to do things like fishing, kite surfing, wave runners, etc., I might recommend Hatteras Island, as that is far more secluded and caters to those things. You can also rent wave runners up on the northern end, but if you are looking for a secluded place to fish, etc., then it is Hatteras Island (south of Nags Head).

Hope this helps. If there are other things you want to consider in determining which town, ask me and I will give you my opinion.

Kind regards,
