Hi everyone! I am coming down from MA in July for a vacation with my family. I've been to Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach area before and loved it...but I didn't have my kids with me. They are 4 and 6. So, I need to make sure I pick a spot that will have the most for them. They are beach loving kids, but I would also like different attractions for them. My husband has been to Corolla and other Outer Banks spots before and he'd prefer to go out there. What is the best bet for our family? I'm looking to rent a house or cottage (more private than a condo or apartment) for no more than $1500 in close proximity to the beach. The internet offers so many rentals it's overwhelming. I'm not sure where we will get the most for our money and for an all around great family vacation. So I guess the biggest question is this: Wrightsville Beach or Outer Banks? Thanks so much! Any info would be great!!

I'm from Mass. as well. My wife and I bought a beach house near Wrightsville last year. Kure Beach is family-oriented, quiet, and only 20-30 minutes from Wrightsville and downtown Wilmington if you need some actilon (i.e.-if it rains).
We really like OBX, but it's all beach, with n city nearby....
