...and listen to the ocean? Good for you. I don't have that luxury. OC is not my only beach/ocean excursion. It is my cheapest.

No, I cannot listen to the ocean at home except maybe on a CD. I simply meant that I do not need to go to the ocean and spend $$$ to relax. No offense intended whatsoever.

I don't go to OC during the summer anymore, too crowded amongst the many other issues that have cropped up. I do like to go in late March and early October as long as the weather is agreeable, the parking is still free at the inlet, me and the gf can go walk around for the day, get some good food, play some games, have a few drinks and get a nice dinner and head home. It does make for a long day with it being a 2.5 hour drive each way and then spending 8-10 hours walking around but to me its worth it for a day trip

Another good place to go is chincoteague island. It's about 2 hour drive beyond OC and well worth the drive. It seems very family-oriented. The beach is on a State Park and very large. Bikes to rent along with good restaurants. Good choice between BnB or motel. For our 10th anniversary we stayed at a motel on the island and it was nice, clean, quiet. There were a few nice gourmet restaurants to choose from. I liked the area because there wern't drunken teenagers running around.

That would be my go-to if it were up to me.


We just came back from spending a week there. Noticed a hell of a lot more Butchs and Dykes. Also seems like a lot more “Purple Parrot” type restaurants opened up. We normally eat at the Summerhouse on Rehoboth Ave, Claws and Dogfish Head. Might have to go back to Myrtle Beach.

Stay away from the Grand Strand at night. It's just as bad if not worse than the OC boards.

We normally stay at the northern end up by grand dunes. Few children, no games or rides. Just peace and quiet.

Go to Fenwick Island. The Seaside Inn is $90 a night. There is no crowd.

Add me for another vote to stay away from OC. Dewey or Rohowbeth get my vote. If you are going with a family for a week, there are lots of great deals to be had in the fall at the outerbanks.
