KittyHawk is where the Wright brothers flew the first plane.

Well, bt, I also choose the mountains for you (closer to visit me )

I don't have any personal recommendations and finding a house other than one with 5 or so bedrooms may be difficult. Most of those houses are to accomodate larger groups. I would just have to say "search". OBX is certainly a good place to go. Charleston, Isle of Palms, are also good locations. Charleston will put you near Isle of Palms but more hotels there versus houses. Isle of Palms will have both. A bit inland you may find a house with a pool - a good option.

Gotta run, customer

If you have time, go to Brevard, and take a drive through the Pisgah National Forest. It is SO BEAUTIFUL! The people in Brevard are wonderful, too...and they have Sweet Tea.

I remember seeing a member was from somewhere in the outerbanks, where horses roam free, showing pics, and writing it down to look up. I can't remember the name right now
(old, don't cha know), but I'll look on the atlas and see.
Then maybe I'll remember the member's name (tall order) so you can PM, Maybe.
Or just forget about it, buckytom.

Anyway, what do you like? Historic, antique, nature, upscale, trendy (yeh, right. I don't get that impression).

Oops. Me wrong.
I just found it.
Assateague Island, Md.
sorry.
Try the OuterBanks. But I think it's hurricane season there, like it is here too.
But you're close enough (500 miles) to get out, if need be. And they always have manditory evacs, if threat arises.

Hi - I live in Wilmington NC, which is smack in the middle (within 15 miles) of 2 great beach areas: Wrightsville Beach and Carolina Beach. CB is less expensive and more "honky-tonk" - I'll call a friend of mine and see what they're asking for a 2br rental. Also, Wilmington has alot of old city charm, Cape Fear Riverfront, tour boats and USS NC Battleship to explore. I'll post more info asa I get it.

Oh, bucky, Buck and I loved the Outer Banks. We spent many vacations tent camping on the dunes of the federal campground on Ocrakoke Island. Buck loved to surf fish. We had many a wonderful meal of blue fish and a memorable breakfast of fresh flounder, which was awesome.

We loved the lighthouses and did go to Kitty Hawk to see where the Wright brothers did their thing. As someone already said, hang gliding was something tourists could enjoy.

I'd love to go back and relive those wonderful vacations. They were among the best we ever took. Our trips to Vermont are a very close second.
