Not for 55+ as vacation spot

We have vacationed at. Hunting Island before the houses disappeared into the ocean andthenHarbor Island, smaller but beach isn't as great . This year Fripp

A resort community for families with young, teens, and college kids. We were near the main road and it was like Route 1 in Maine is summer . Except it was Golf carts with families and lots of teens and college kids from 9:00pm to midnight tearing around looking for the party. I

Too much for quiet family vacation. More like see you later kids be in by 12 do whatever. No thanks

Based on the date of your posting, it sounds like you hit prime time for Spring Break. We have stayed at Fripp many times, but we avoid the summer season and school break times and haven't found it at all like you describe.

And, BTW, we are also 55+

I'm really puzzled by your description as well; it must have been a spring break week or the height of summer season. Considering that over 80% of the permanent residents on Fripp are over 55, I would find your findings to be way out of whack... with all due respect.

We have heard the same thing re Spring Break. The security police need to crack down. We were here in Feb and Remora Drive was absurd..even at that time! Speed limit is 25mph NOT 45mph. Does a child/dog need to be run over? Crack down. With all due respect. SLOW DOWN!.
