I have never been to Carolina Beach. I read in many of the posts that it had a somewhat unsavory reputation, but that was chaning. Myrtle Beach was a bit too "red" for us, however, we stayed in Surfside Beach, which was fine. I am traveling with my 78 year old mother in-law, my wife, my brother in-law and his wife, pluse two twleve year olds and an eight year old.
It looks like renting a house is more affordable on Carolina Beach than Ocean Isle for example and I am wondering why the price difference. Do you think we would enjoy Ocean Isle, or Topsail more?
It seems like there is lot to do from a historical standpoint and plenty to do in Wilmington.
Any suggestions before I book a place would be greatly appreciated.
