O.I.area for families w/teens

Ok, got a few days we're spending there soon.

What FUN things are there to do there --- or nearby - considering we are families w/teens?

PS - Any damage from Irene?

I see no one replied to your post. I too am considereing a trip to Oak Island next month and have debated beteween Oak Island and Ocean Isle since I am taking 14 yr old boys. Just curious about how your trip went.

Neither Oak island, nor Ocean Isle, are like Myrtle Beach where there are tons of things that teens would like to do.

But neither will you have the hassles of thousands of tourists converging on the same square inch of beach, road, restaurant, etc, etc.

If you like something a little slower paced, where spending hours at the not so crowded beach, and being close enough to other areas of interest, then you'll love it out here on Oak Island (I am biased).

Lots of not so far away activities that might be of interest to the teens:

Hope this helps...

Very helpful information! I think we have had enough of the over-crowded experience and will go with one of these other choices a little drive away but much more relaxed with perhaps a day trip to Myrtle or North Myrtle. Thanks so much!
