Old-fashioned Family Beach

Jump to last reply

I have rather an odd question.

We love the Outer Banks of North Carolina -- lots of nature, laid-back atmosphere, no high-rises, lots of old-fashioned family hotels.

Are there other beaches in the southeast like that? Especially in Florida, where it is a bit warmer in the winter?

We are trying out a place in Cocoa Beach this January, but I know it probably be particularly warm.

The atmosphere is the most important aspect. It doesn't have to be swimming temperature. We aren't the "laying on the beach" type anyway.

This spring we visited Jekyll Island, Ga., and Amelia Island, Fla. They were both far too much "resort" atmosphere for our taste.

The Florida Panhandles used to be like what I am looking for -- back in the late 1960s. (Yes, I am dating myself!) But it looks to be totally high-rise these days.

I would be really interested in any beach, town or hotel recommendations. Thanks!
