I am currently looking for a destination for a beach vacation in mid August (probably the 13th through the 18th). Here are my details:
The party will consist of me, my husband and our 5 month old son, plus my parents. We don't really need shopping or restaurants since we will probably cook in and the goal is to enjoy the beach and each other's company. I would love for the water to be calm enough and warm enough to introduce my son to the joys of the ocean. The ideal beach would not be too crowded (that's really important to me - I live in a big city and vacation is about escaping the crowds, not finding new crowds!) and the ideal beach town would have no or high rise hotels / condos and very little heavy tourist infrastructure. In other words, no Panama City or Destin for me!
When my Dad first suggested HH, I said no because I have always thought of it as a major tourist destination, but after reading through some of the posts, I am wondering if I didn't dismiss it too hastily.
What do you think?
Thanks for your help!
