OBX where with kids?

Traveling withour children ages 12 and 14 to OBX. They love good beaches and boogie boarding with people but not packed. We enjoy some fun activities (not to be over scheduled though) and good restaurants. Want to enjoy some nice family time. We enjoyed Kill Devil Hills about 6 years ago.

Need advice... Where would you reccomend...Kill Devil Hills , Nags Head and maybe a day or 2 in Cape Hattersa to get out of the craziness?

We do not have a house booked. So will probably get a hotel. Doesn't have to be fancy. Know of any good hotels on the beach with suite accomadations?

Appreciate any help! Thanks

Nags Head if you need evening things to do with the Children , but as you said if you want less crowded go farther south. I like Avon to Hatteras village and of course you just want it laid back Ocracoke, Plenty of hotels there too. Nothing on the beach but just a short ride to it .

Thank you for your reply. We found a nice hotel in northern Kitty Hawk (Hilton Garden Inn) on the beach for a few days. Hoping this beach will be a happy meduim and not to packed. Any thoughts?

Then thinking we will head down to enjoy a small town atmosphere in Avon, Buxton or Hatteras for a couple days. And maybe a day trip to Ocracoke. We really prefer to stay on the beach. Enjoy hearing the sound of the ocean. Any reccomendations as to which town and hotel?

Appreciate the feedback!

Not sure you will find anything on the beach down there mostly just homes .

Hatteras village will give you that small town atmosphere or Ocracoke

On Ocracoke you will find some hotels on Silver Lake, that is the harbor there on the sound side .

Think Ocracoke is too far for our brief time period. Just tried to get in the Lighthouse View Hotel. Thought this would be perfect. They are all booked except for parking lot view. Not what we want. Guess we might hope they have a cancellation for an ocean view. Not sure what else to do at this point.

Thanks for your help!
