We are a family of four -- twin boy and girl will be turning 13 while we're on vacation. :).
We vacation every year in Kure Beach, but this year want to add a few days in the Outer Banks so our kids can learn more about the Wright Brothers and the history of flight. We will be coming in probably on Labor Day and would like to spend four or five nights in OBX. Where would you recommend we stay? Mom and Dad really enjoy the beach, but the kids want things to do. Museums, arcades , boardwalks, mini-golf, day trips, ferries, etc. What would be a good central location that would put us near activities for the kids, but still offer a nice, quiet beach town for mom and dad? What things would you recommend we do and see in the area?
We will be looking for an oceanfront rental -- nothing luxurious, we just need it to be clean, have wonderful views, and WiFi so we can stay connected to our offices. I would welcome suggestions for vacation rentals. Also, will we be able to rent a partial week after Labor Day?
Thanks for any and all input.
