1st trip to OBX--suggestions

Hello, we are going to OBX, staying in Nags Head, last week of May. We have never been to OBX. It will be myself, my husband, and toddler. Can you suggest if there are any must do things for us? We are mainly looking to relax on the beach, but I know t here is more to do than that. Thank you!

You will be in good proximity to go to Kill Devil Hills and the Wright Brothers Memorial; Jockey's Ridge and see the giant dunes and the hang gliders...fantastic kite shop there, too; up in Corolla is the Currituck light which is cool but it may be a long way up to the top of the light with a toddler! :) Still, the grounds are interesting; also in Corolla are the wild ponies which used to run free in the area but may now be corraled;

Roanoke Island has the Elizabeth II and the Gardens . I think you could do any of those with a young one .

Also on Roanoke Island/Manteo, there is an aquarium that's perfect for toddlers. Only takes an hour to go through it. Has a touch tank that includes being able to touch sting rays as they glide by gently. Make sure to catch the scube diver show in the main tank where the diver swims with fish and a few sharks.

MUST eat at Tortugas Lie (Mile Post 11). The tuna bites for an appetizer is to die for. It's a little place, so it get's busy around dinner.
