I am looking for some advice about which village to choose for a June Outer Banks vacation. Here are my priorities:
1.) pet friendly beach--I would like to take my dog to the beach on a leash.
2.) walking or bike riding distance to the beach--how far is Soundside from the Oceanside?
3.) peace and quiet (not interested in night life or "theme park" type attractions)
4.) lightweight sporting (kayaking, fishing, boating for novices)
5.) historical or regional sightseeing
Also, I am not familiar with the "Sound". Can you swim in the Sound? Are there alligators?
Thanks so much!
