Will I Hate The OBX?

Dh wants to go to the Outer Banks this year with friends. Some secluded spot that you need four wheel drive to get to. I like the beach, but my beach is Jersey -- boardwalks, casinos, restaurants. So what is there to do in the OBX? Will I be bored out of my skull?

lol, we go to OBX for the vacation where we dont really leave the house. We always go with other families, and rent a nice big house. We always have a pool, and typically the house has some type of "game room". The families all pitch in and are "responsible" for particular meals. We pretty much just hang out the whole time we are there. Kids play and have a ball... adults hang out, have a few drinks, play games etc... We do like it every few years inbetween our other vacations. There are not alot of places to even go. It has built up some over the years, but there isnt alot of entertainment.
ETA: Oh yeah, and of course, there is the beach! That is always fun!

Yeah, you wont like it...lolol. We usuallly go with people who rent a place for a week. I typically can do 3 days there. Maybe you will get other opinions that will make it better for you... lol. There are a few places you can go.. kind of touristy.. lighthouses etc...... We have done that stuff, so not really much else left. Have fun if you do go!

Thanks! This is the "I have to do it because DH never gets to choose" trip. I already know what is in store. He'll be drinking with his buddies all day and I'll be on kid duty.

I love the obx, but you may not. If you have to go, I suggest giving yourself daily talks ahead of time - it will be different . There are some fun restaurants. Try Tortuga's Lie, Mama Kwans's, Sugar Creek for good seafood. The Lost Colony is a nice nighttime show. If you like scrapbooking, there's a great scrapbook store. Otherwise, it is definitely a quiet, more nature oriented family type vacation spot.
