We are driving from Atlanta and planning a family vacaction for mid August. Most important criteria is being on the Ocean (not sound). We mostly will be on the beach and going to restaurants with occasional excursion. We have little kids and will not be "partying" etc. I am seeing vacation rentals on different beaches such as Carolina Beach, Top Sail, Kure Beach, etc.
Can someone give me the "lay of the land?" Are all these beaches close together and comparable or do they each have plusses and minuses? We are staying for a full week and I am looking for good value in the house we rent. Any suggestions/input are welcome.
TIA for replies
