I am trying to plan a trip for this summer for my family, my parents and my in-laws. We have 3 kids, 5, 9 and 12. We've been to the Outer Banks and have always stayed around Kitty Hawk. We're looking for a place where we can rent a house on the beach (for not a ton of $), where it's not too crowded and commercial but close to activities for the kids to do. Also, close to shopping and some restaurants. My parents have been to Topsail and Oak Island. Trying to find a good place to make everyone happy!
