Carolina or Kure Beach?

We are going in mid April. Any advice on which one is better for a family with 2 boys 3 and 8 years old? Any advice to stay? Hotel, condo or house? Thanks!

I don't care for Carolina Beach at all. The beach is really sloped and there is a drop off so the waves crash on you. Would not want my small child in the water there. Read and look at all the posts and pictures of the area. I would check out Wrightsville Beach or Ocean Isle Beach.

Carolina and Kure Beaches are great family areas! We stayed in Kure at Ocean Dunes the last time we were there. Nice large resort, 3 or 4 pools, tennis and basketball courts. And just around the corner is the NC Aquarium...Ft. Fisher...and the Ferry (goes over to Southport) The Kure Beach pier is great, fun to walk out and see the pelicans and watch the fishermen/women.

Check out Ocean Dunes..or maybe look at www.vrbo.com Good deals on there too.

Here is where we stayed......

You'll enjoy your stay. Here's a lovely video from Kure Beach earlier this week.

CCT, beautiful video! Nothing like an ocean sunrise! Love it!

Here is another video of a tour of Kure Beach. (came up after your video)

And to the original poster...either beach is great, they are side by side. If you stay in Kure, it's a very short drive up to Carolina to town or resturants there. We stayed in Ocean Dunes in Kure a few years back. Nice place. This is the condo ....
