Best Beach Vacations for Families with Young Children

Outer Banks Vacation Ideas for Families with Babies & Toddlers

outer-banks-vacations-babies-and-toddlersThe Outer Banks is the perfect destination for families with young children. Why? Staying in a vacation rental is much more convenient than being cooped up in a hotel room when you have a baby and/or toddler. You’ll have plenty of space to let your little one play, sleep and eat. The Outer Banks has the largest selection of vacation rentals than any other beach destination. Compared to other east coast beach destinations, the Outer Banks offers a peaceful, family friendly environment with neighborhoods, slower speed limits and easy beach access. You’ll also find plenty of Outer Banks attractions, restaurants and shops that cater to little ones. We’ve compiled a list of recommendations for Outer Banks vacations for families with babies and toddlers.

 

When to come: Off season – April/May or September/October

No parent wants to be stuck in traffic with a baby or toddler in the back seat. Avoid the Summer crowds and take advantage of ideal weather in the Spring and Fall! You’ll also take advantage of off-season rental rates! Start your search.

 

What to do:

Visit the Sound Beach at Jockey’s Ridge for shallow, calm water that your little one can splash around in!

Spend a day in Manteo to visit the NC Aquarium, take a stroll through the Elizabethan Gardens, stop by Island Farm and check out Pirate Adventures!

Look for seashells on the beach.

 

Where to stay: All Outer Banks towns are family friendly, although we recommend Corolla, Duck and Southern Shores for their Oceanside communities with convenient beach access. View our list of top Outer Banks Rentals for Families with Young Children below….
