Outer banks in September with toddler and baby

Planning a trip to outer banks in September with 2 year old and 6 week old. Another couple with similar aged kids is going with us. Looking for advice on what area to stay in? Is September a good time to go? Things to do? Any advice is appreciated.

September is nice-the water is warm and there are fewer people. It's hard to recommend things to do for anyone else. We always just enjoy the beach and hanging out.

I will urge you to get trip insurance. September is high hurricane season. If you have to evacuate you can recoup some of your losses.

I agree about the rental insurance but it is entirely unclear as to whether or not you are planning to rent a house or are staying in a hotel/motel.

I agree that September can be one of the very best times to be on the OBX. Fewer visitors and the water is often the warmest it will get. Prices generally lower and pretty much all the stores, etc., and the "attractions" are open.

We first went many years ago at the very end of September and thoroughly enjoyed what ended up being many many trips at that time of year.

Don't get all crazy about the "insurance!!!!!!" warning above. Why? Because if you use one of the MANY rental agencies on the OBX the insurance will BE OFFERED as part of the contract.

If you are forced to evacuate be aware of how that will work:

you will have to submit a written mandatory evacuation order from the local government (obtainable on line) to the insurance agency (which is different from the rental agency). They will refund the amount of rental based on the number of days you were forced to relinquish. You will NOT get the amount you paid for the insurance refunded.

This is standard procedure and if necessary, easily accomplished.
