Nice beach to visit close to Smoky Mountains

We are booked to visit Disney this September but we may need to cancel as I am in need of knee surgery. So now we are looking for a cheaper trip we can do before the surgery.

We want to visit the Smoky Mountains but would like to take the kids to the ocean. I feel horrible and would like to spend a couple days on the ocean.

We were supposed to spend a week on Sanibel Island as well as Disney. This is the kind of beach atmosphere we like. We would prefer a nice quiet beach with oceanfront hotels.

What would be a nice beach for us? We have 3 kids; 7, 4, and 2 and really don't want a big party area.

Thanks for the help!

Hi Casey,

For some general info on NC beaches to get you started, see my post on this thread: tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g49136-i1202-k2898…

It's about a 5-6 hour drive from the Smokies to the southern NC beaches. Feel free to ask more questions as you plan your trip!
