Sea Pines Plantation - Hilton Head
Lots to do, older kids can go off on their own too. All around just a fabulous non over priced vacation option. Last year I rented a condo, this year I have booked a house.
We like Destin. The Emerald coast area in particular right around scenic 98 is great place to stay because the commons are right there and the beach is really nice. There are lots of houses in the area you can book. We usually book a cottage.
We did Clearwater last year and it isn't as touristy, but there aren't as many things to do either.

Louise06:Ocean City, NJ is great. Great family friendly island and boardwalk is perfect for the kids. You can fly into Atlantic City or Philly.
I LOVE OCNJ! I grew up going there and spent many summers working at Shrivers on the boardwalk, there is no other place like it. I've been tempted several times to order a Mack & Manco's pizza and have it shipped here!
We love Cape San Blas, FL. We get a condo and make most our food, but there are yummy restaurants nearby too. The beach is georgous and private, many activities to do, biking trail, horse rides on the beach etc.
I too looove Charleston... it is sooo my favorite place to vacay... I mainly stay at this hotel called Residence Inn my marriot.. is on 90 Ripley Dr... its like a lil condoapt... it comes with everything... so all you needs you, the kids. fam etc and some food.. they also accept small dogs if you do have one.. oh yeah they also have free breakfast in the mornings.
We usually go the the beach.. Folly beach.. down town to the markets.. I love Hymans and Fleet Landing.. @Hymans 2ppl can even eat off one plate... thats just how much food it is.. not to mention it is DELISH!!
OOMMMG.... I almost forgot.. the Crab House on Wappo Dr. we absolutely loooove that place.. it is soo good..
I just love the whole atmosphere of Charleston and the fun lil things around it that we have grown to love...
We've done the Destin area, South Florida, and this year we're doing Fripp Island in SC.
We rent a condo or house depending on the number - food is usually cooked at home taking turns with dinner (or takeout on some nights).
