So about $5000 for the week - leave the country and hit a all inclusive in the Caribbean.

You can get a 5-star adult-only all inclusive in Cancun for less than that...

He has kids - but yeah - at that price you can get a pretty top level family friendly resort.

I just did Punta Cana with 2 kids for about $3500.

Yup. Closed loop cruise to the carribean, no passports needed for like $600 a head. Of course if your kids are spanws of satan maybe not.

 

If so I recommend Aruba, St Thomas...Southern Carribean >Eastern>Western>Bahamas/Bermuda

Come to Wrightsville, I'd like to have beers with a crazy Ukrainian.

 

Also, nice thing about here...it's attached to a good sized town.  Most of the beaches in NC aren't.

Try Fripp Island.  Most places come with a golf cart, very family friendly, houses from $1500-3500 week.  Only draw back is dining out is limited, so you may need to be okay with cooking at home a lot.

Folly Beach like @chknwing suggested is good if you're going for just a slow and low vacation with a lot of time on the beach. Good friend of mine lives on James Island and I find the area to be boring compared to some vacation destinations but with a family it might be just what you need. Emerald Isle in NC is also great for that kind of vacation.

If you want something a bit more exotic you could try Costa Rica or the Cancun area. Very family friendly at some resorts/hotels.

Kiawah Island, SC. $700 per night would get you a nice place. It's a private island with all the amenities and a large portion of it is nature preserve. Tons of wildlife, world class golf, hot soccer moms, etc. It's a 30 min drive into downtown Charleston, 25 mins to Folly Beach and a little less than four hours from Charlotte. For $700 a night you could just stay at the Sanctuary Resort.

We go several times a year and plan on buying a second home there in another 5 years or so.

You can also find properties for rent through Akers Ellis and VRBO.

We go to Edisto, it’s super relaxed and not much going on if you just want some quiet time.

that is a real vacation considering the ages.  Vacationing with a bunch of small kids never seemed like vacation to me.  Somewhat bearable now that mind are somewhat self sufficient at 4 and 7
