If you are like me, then your favorite vacations are when you get to enjoy nice, comfortable weather. You also enjoy basking by beautiful water and enjoying the sun's rays. This means that you probably want a beach vacation. There are many beautiful places to visit if you decide that you want to stay in the U.S.A., so don't think that you have to travel far away to have a fun beach vacation.
Staying in the mainland part (or the islands just off the coast) of the United States is great because you can vacation on a budget if you want to, you can take your own car, and there are many places no matter where you are that most likely won't take a long time to travel to.
Here are my choices for the top beach vacations in the mainland (or just off the coast) United States for 2014:
Siesta Key is said to have one of the most beautiful beaches in the entire world. It is located on the Gulf of Mexico near Sarasota, Florida, and it offers beautiful, clear water and white sand. The sand is 99% crystal quartz and is said to be some of the whitest sand in the whole entire world.
The weather in Siesta Key and the surrounding area is hot and humid in the summer, with heavy rain almost every day. In the winter and early spring, the weather is usually the best with dry weather and more comfortable temperatures. The average temperature in the winter is a comfortable 65 degrees Fahrenheit.
Nantucket is a great beach destination, especially if you are located in the Northeast because it is easy to travel to. Nantucket is an island approximately 30 miles from Cape Cod. You can get to Nantucket either by ferry or plane.
Nantucket is home to beautiful water, cliffs, lighthouses, relaxing beaches, and beautiful homes. There are also many five star activities and accommodations for you to stay at, and is known to be a high-end area.
The weather in Nantucket is usually the best in the summer time as the winter can get cold.
Myrtle Beach is located in South Carolina. It is home to many beaches, golf courses, seafood restaurants, and more. It is a very popular beach destination with over 14,000,000 people visiting the area each year. You can get to Myrtle beach by plane, car, train, or bus, which makes it easily accessible for many people in the United States.
The peak season for Myrtle beach is between March to September, and this is usually when the weather is the best for visitors. The off season is from November to February.
La Jolla Cove
La Jolla Cove is a beach in San Diego, California. You can easily get to La Jolla by car, public transportation, and/or plane.
La Jolla is a popular area for visitors because of its beautiful beaches, fun swimming areas, and the beautiful cliffs that it sits on.
