Wrightsville Vs. Myrtle?

Hi, travelling to Chapel Hill in Mid June. Never been to NC or SC. Wanted to make a side trip to the beach. (I know Chapel Hill is pretty far inland)

Considering the Outer Banks vs. Wrightsville vs. Myrtle Beach.

From what I gather, Myrtle is the most touristy, Outer Banks is harder to get to, and perhaps Wrightsville is the least popular of the 3.

We have a couple small kids, 4 and 5, so looking for a family friendly place.

Probably only staying 2 to 3 days at the beach.

Any opinions? Thanks.

Lewisville, North...

From Chapel Hill, the Outer Banks aren't THAT far away. It all depends on what part of OBX you want to stay around. You can easily go to the Kitty Hawk/ Kill Devil Hills area and find lots for the family to do. Myrtle is very touristy, but if you stay in North Myrtle, it's not quite as bad. Again, lots of things for the family to do. I have never been to Wrightsville Beach, so I can't really express an opinion there.

If I were choosing, I would go to the Outer Banks. It is one of my favorite places in North Carolina (the southwest mountains being my all-time favorite).

Enjoy your trip!
