My husband and I are starting to plan a vacation to the North Carolina Coast for September 2011 and need planning advice. This will be our first time to the area and we will have a 1-year old with us. We are considering renting a small vacation home on or near the water (not sure what location would be best). We need a crash course in NC Coast vacations! Any advice on what area we should stay in and what to see and do would be greatly appreciated!
