Kitty Hawk or Hatteras?

My family and I are planning a trip to OBX in June and have never been there. We have a 3 1/2 y.o. son to consider with activities and location. Anyone suggest Kitty Hawk or Hatteras??? Things to do in each?

Well I guess it depends on how much entertainment your family desires. When our son was that age, all he needed for fun was the beach. We tended to spend more time south in Avon, Ocracoke or up north in Corolla, which at that time was less developed than it is now.

However, Kitty Hawk is full of options of activities, stores, mini golf, theatres, Jockey's Ridge, etc...Many types of restaurants, some good, some not so much. Many chain stores, and interesting local shops. You are also close to driving to other beaches both north and south.

Hatteras is much more laid back with respect to entertainment, but still offers great boutiques, gift shops and a vaiety of locally owned restaurants.
