Bike Week?...To crowded?

We fly over from Germany and we wanna see OBX:

But we found out, it is bike week during that time.

What is a good place to stay with two kids 8 and 12 years.

My husband was concerned about drunk and crazy people then.

We that about staying in Kill devilhills, Colony 4.

Is this a good Motel, or has somebody an other idea.

Bike Week isn't like Sturges they are usually under control and not too rowdy. Outer Banks is basically a family area and you should not have any problems with gangs or violence here .

Staying in the Nags Head area should work for you , plenty to do ans see from there.

Our Bike Week is very "tame" by Bike Week standards, and we do not have huge crowds with trouble. There are lots of people here, but it is not a bad crowd. Alot of the crowd that now rides Harley's (and all bikes) is made up of professional people who just like to ride, it's not the old days of bikers with the bad image. Yes, there will be some aditional traffic ( and noise on the main by-pass!), but you'll have a great time, and the kids will probably have fun looking at the bikes!

Have a great trip, and Nags Head is a great place to stay.

Like the others say, bike week is not full of drunks at all. There will be a lot of bikes here and you will hear them going up and down the roads, but it is not bad and its not crowded. Colony IV is fine, they redid it a few years ago and the indoor pool is nice that time of year.

My moms weekend at the beach is often during bike week and we are perfectly comfortable going out and about. Very tame bike week.

Have fun!
