visit to NC in Feebruary with kids....anything to do

We are considering a trip to NC and would drive to the coast, but have 4 boys 16-8 and need things for them to do....

Carolina Beach will surely be very quiet in February...don't expect too much.

There's a state park there, so if it's a mild day, it's worth a visit. Nice maritime habitat to look at.

About 20 minutes south is the NC State Aquarium at Fort Fisher. It's open year-round and definitely worth a visit. That should certainly fill a good half-day of activity.

Fort Fisher itself is also a historic site---a Civil War fort.

Of course you can also drive up to Wilmington, which is a decent-sized city...the historic downtown waterfront is a popular year-round attraction. They've got a horse/buggy tour that goes around looking at the old antebellum houses and historic business district.

There's also tours at the old USS North Carolina, a World War II vessel that's been preserved...if you've got four boys I think they'll like that.

Yes, that area will be very quiet that time of year.

You may want to consider heading just a little south to Myrtle Beach, SC. (maybe one hour from Carolina Beach) LOTS more to do there. Still quiet, but more things open, resturants, malls, shops, etc.
