    Looking for a vacation destination - VA, NC or SC

    Sweetie and I NEED to get out of town for a bit to recharge. She loves the water/beach/ocean and it's too hot to go to FL right now.

    Does anyone have any destination suggestions for VA, NC or SC? I'd prefer an area off the beaten path that's not too "touristy". Doesn't have to be a ton to "do", but I would like some decent choices for local food.

    We're going to Charleston for her son's wedding in late September. I wouldn't mind a destination that's close enough for a day trip into Charleston so we can preview the wedding venue, etc.

    All I require is an internet connection so I can stay on top of things on GTT.

    THANKS!

    We did Kure Beach, NC a couple of years ago. It *is* a tourist area but not as bad as many, many others I've been to over the years. It's a good place to just hangout and relax.

    Check out Assateague or Chincoteague Island. Hang out with real Mustangs while vacationing on the beach. Bring your 4WD vehicle and roam the dunes.

    You could look up some of the camp grounds along the shore line, Cherrystone in VA, NC Outer Banks in Rodanthe Watersports and campground, or Castaways in Ocean City MD, Ocean Lakes in Myrtle Beach. If you have an RV great if not they have rental trailer rvs or cabins on site. You can kick back relax, roast some S'mores.

    We like Emerald Isle, or Atlantic Beach NC both beaches maybe 10-15 people on the beach mid July behind the house we had rented.

    Daughter ,friend and granddaughter asked us to go with them to Myrtle Beach .. Staying on the 15th floor, yes ocean front, don't think we're going to like this compared to renting a house.

    Oh well time will tell.

    I would like to suggest Topsail Island, NC. I have been going there for 30 years (I almost feel like a local). It is exactly as you describe. We will be heading down there for the second time this year, next month. My parents have a house there. We hope to eventually live there, but those plans are quite a ways off. Coincidentally, my parents full time home is in the suburbs of Charleston. Charleston is also a great place. It is about a 4.5 hours right from Topsail. It would make a long day trip but....


    Oh, and Topsail has internet.

    My girlfriend's parents have rented a house on the north side of Topsail Island the second week in August. I've heard it's really nice. I'm hoping I can make it out there for a couple days.

    My favorite place is Oak Island, NC. It's very low key and not touristy at all. The beaches are never crowded. The only bad thing is the handful of restaurants do get busy on the weekends.

    Depending on budget, Kiawah Island is a beautiful place about an hour south of Charleston with great food and activities.

    Another vote for the Outer Banks NC. My inlaws have a house there, thus I have been multiple times. Good spot to relax (beach, fish, eat, etc.)
