My husband and I are planning to vacation with some friends at the end of the september. Maybe around labor day for a week. The options we are considering are Hilton Head, SC, Outer Banks (maybe Emerald Isle?), or Block Island. Our kids will be around 19.5 months by the time we go. Anyone been to any of these places with little ones? Do you think there is one we definitely should do over the others? Love any input thanks!

@Mammabare: we went to Hilton Head when DD was 15 months old and had a great time! We'll probably go again with both kids this summer

@Mammabare: Outer banks is amazing!!! We took our kids when they were 2 and 4. My 2 yr old didn't do a whole lot - but my 4 yr old had fun!
Sand dunes - might be hard for a 19 month old but you could try it!
Wright brother memorial - makes for a nice walk to see the memorial and plane
Kitty hawk kites - fun time to just walk around and look
Pea Island NWF is down the road - cool trails and bird watching
Cape Hatteras - about an hour away - nice drive, stop at Pea Island on the way. Kids wont be able to go in lighthouse but its a great place to walk around and the gift shop is cool!
On the other side of town is Manteo - Alligator River NWF is down there - cool trails again. Neat little town and there is a great diner to eat at - cant remember the name but you cant miss it!!
And there is always the beach

@Mammabare: we were thinking about heading down to Hilton head or OBX also! My son is 18 months and our friends LO is 19 months... Ultimately we weren't sure there were enough activities in OBX. But I think Hilton head would be fantastic!!!!
I love block island - it's very small, and not a ton to do, but that may be more your style. I think a week there could be too long - seems like the perfect long weekend spot. I must admit that my husband is an activity person - he needs a full shedule on vacation - I could be happy on the beach every day!

A friend of mine highly recommended Waterscape Condos in Florida! She just went with her 1 and 2 year old

Thanks so much for all of the advice! Sorry I just got back online, little one has been not cooperating with mommy time, er I mean nap time last few days! In any event maybe HH is the way to go. I do love Block Island but my husband is also an activity person. Seems like HH might have more to offer the whole bunch of us. Thanks again all!
