Which US Beach Should You Vacation At This Summer?
If you consider yourself preppy, Cape Cod is the place to go. Not only are there beautiful beaches, but there's also shopping and fishing. You can go around and look at the lighthouses or go on a whale watch!
Miami Beach is definitely where the party is at. During the day you'll be able to go swimming in the ocean or sit on the beach, and at night you can go clubbing. Partying is the order of the day so you'll never have a dull moment here.
Oahu perfectly blends urban culture with white sand beaches. Not only can you relax on pristine, picturesque beaches, but you can also go shopping in the state's capital or visit the Pearl Harbor and the U.S.S. Arizona Memorial.
In Malibu you'll be able to experience a more active beach day. Malibu is popular with surfers and even if you don't surf, you can enjoy watching others. And if you're not really into the beach scene there's always hiking and wineries to visit!
You can experience a taste of the Caribbean in Key West! In Key West you'll be able to experience fishing, snorkeling, parasailing, watching the dolphins, and white sand beaches.
The Outer Banks is perfect for history buffs. In the Outer Banks, the Wright brothers took their first flight, the pirate Blackbeard fought his last battle, and the lost colony disappeared. There's also secluded beaches, fishing, windsurfing, and ATV driving so there's something for everyone.
Lately college kids have been traveling to South Padre Island for spring break and there's a good reason why! South Padre Island is becoming the place to be with its white sandy beaches, kiteboarding, deep sea fishing, and dolphin-watching excursions.
Fort Lauderdale is definitely Miami Beach's rival in the sense that Fort Lauderdale has beautiful scenery, palm trees, shopping, and relaxation. It's also not as expensive when compared to other beach destinations in Florida, so that's a major plus.
Hilton Head is perfect for relaxation. Your days are going to consist of relaxing on the beach, golfing, and going to the spa. At night you'll be able to enjoy a seafood dinner while watching the sunset and listening to jazz music.
