ETA: downside might be that they don't allow alcohol on the beach

PM me if you have questions. It's a great little place. Check out the Outter Banks too. It's lovely there.

As far as the Outer Banks, we have always wanted to visit, but the timing never seems quite right. We usually do our east coast vacation either the last week of May or the 1st week of June & I've been told it's still chilly in the Outer Banks & you def can't get in the ocean that time of year. I'm not sure I believe that going south just down to Topsail would make a diff, but I'm told it makes a diff of about 10 degrees in the air & water temp. Any ideas if thats actually true??
Thanks again girls for being so helpful!!!

Not really sure who said that but they must've gone during an off year! It's is anything but chilly/too cold. It's actually a perfect time to go before our sweltering and humid July and August begin.
NC and SC have almost identical weather on the coast...hot, and muggy during the day and stormy at night. I've personally never noticed changes in temp in the water from to OBX all the way down to Charleston.
I don't think you can go wrong with any of the beaches though. It's all great. I would look into Hilton Head too-esp if any one in your family likes golf.

Thank you for your input on the OBX, we may just have to give it a whirl this year, b/c like I said, we have always wanted to visit; I hear it's beautiful. As far as Hilton Head, we use to do Hilton Head before Tybee, so we've been there done that, time to move on to another beach Thank so much for all your help; I truly appreciate it!!!!!

It's a great family vacation spot. We went with a rather large group a few years ago for a wedding and had an excellent time. We were there in September so it was much less busy than I assume it would be in the summer. There were about 14 of us and we rented a house on the beach for the week.
Here are some pictures from the area that I have.
