We are considering a visit to the Outer Banks next July (8 of us - 3 adults, 4 teenagers, and a child). I would love to stay in a house that is in more of a resort community - pools (indoor and outdoor), basketball and tennis courts, and of course, easy walking distance to a beach with lifeguards. Is there anything like this that someone would recommend in Duck? I was looking at the Corolla Light Resort as well.
Also, how is the water temperature usually in July?
