First week of August with my hubby and 3 kiddos (12, 11 and 3). Cant decided! We have had Birch Bay booked, but received a match with Discovery Bay today. Both 2 bedroom units. Help me decide :?

Although I much prefer Discovery Bay as a resort, for kids I think you'll find much more to do around the Birch Bay area. Almost all of the "to do" stuff at Discovery Bay involves driving to, not walking to, plus B.B. has two outdoor pools rather than the one indoor pool at Discovery. Kids seem to love the beach at B.B. but beach shoes are almost a "must". There's a fair amount of rock to negotiate to get to the sand and some of the sandy areas are more like mud, so be prepared to hose off afterward. Enjoy!

I agree. I also prefer Discovery Bay, for kids Birch bay in the summer would be good. There is a water park nearby open in the summer months (unless it went out of business?).

If you have a choice the more important question is Blaine or Birch Bay?
