Before I found OBX we use to vacation on Long Beach Island NJ No boardwalk but lots of stores, restaurants, mini golf, amusement park with arcade.
I will warn you beaches are crowded but if you go to nags head area wont be much different. In my opinion.

Stone Harbor/Avalon would be my first choice, then Bay Head, then Loveladies, then Spring Lake then Cape May. All great primarily residential beach towns without the crowds but very expensive. That is why we go to the Other Banks.

We love Cape May, and alternate years with Hatteras. Each has its merits.

Agree!!! Stone Harbor/Avalon not as crowded as the OC NJ/Wildwood/Cape May. If you want the rides, you can take a simple drive But the beaches in Stone Harbor/Avalon towards the South end of each town, are bigger and not as crowded. Thumbs up

Long Beach Island, NJ-southern end of Beach Haven, or Holgate. I love OBX because it is what LBI was when I was a kid growing up an hour from the 'shore' & cheaper. Also agree with the Avon, Stone Harbor idea. Depends, they don't have many hotels. Cape May is great for bed/breakfast places. If you can wait to go off season, it will be way less crowded all along the coast. Good luck in your search! Sun

Bethany beach would be the place to visit. I used to live there and know the area well. They have a small board walk. Fenwick island has no boardwalk and is to close to ocean city md with lots of vacation people.

I was in Margate and Ventnor, NJ recently and was pleasantly surprised at how much nicer it is than I remembered. I think the real estate boom of the early 2000's was good to the area. It seemed like it was really cleaned up. Also has boardwalk and Ocean City is nearby with amusements.

I love camping in Lowes Delaware at Cape Henlopen State Park. Close to Rehobeth and Dogfish Head brewery.
The State Park is a WWII coastal artillery base with many of the old coastal guns and submarine observation towers. Great beaches as well and dog friendly.

Being close to the Dogfish Head brewery is a definite plus.

Bethany Beach DE is very quiet... we used to go every year before finding the Outer Banks.
