Outer Banks

For most families, the beach is the best vacation a family could have.

You could head to Florida or Cancun, but you'll find that North Carolina affordable family vacations have cheaper accommodations (that don't skimp on the amenities) and quiet beaches that your family will enjoy.

One thing that makes these beach vacations so affordable, and yet so fun for the family, are the vacation rentals available in the area.
