Do you need to drop everything and run away to a magnificent beach for a few days? Who doesn’t? If you’re looking for ideas for your next weekend beach getaway, you’re in luck because we’ve compiled a list of the best beach places for travelers like you!
The 30A, Florida
Florida is probably the number one gathering place for a weekend beach getaway with a seemingly endless coastline between the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. There’s no shortage of options for a vacation—from Miami to Daytona Beach to Tampa—but if you ask us, you can’t beat the stretch of coastline known as the 30A.
Sandwiched between Panama City and Destin, the 30A is dotted with must-visit beaches and idyllic beach towns filled with eateries, attractions, and more!
Cape Cod, Massachusetts
If you prefer your beach to be a little quainter and more laid-back, Cape Cod is your beach destination! The Cape has over 500 miles of beach to discover and satisfy your thirst for sun and surf—but there are plenty of other attractions and landmarks to experience.
Take a lighthouse tour, visit one of the many wineries and breweries, or stroll through all the gorgeous towns in the area. Of course, no visit to Cape Cod is complete without a delicious lobster roll!
Galveston Island, Texas
Beach vacation destinations aren’t just for the coasts! If you live in the middle of the country and want to visit somewhere a little closer, head down to Texas and Galveston Island.
Home to the remarkable Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier, there are tons of things to do on Galveston Island besides unwinding on the beach, from roller coasters to gift shops and more. As they say, everything’s bigger in Texas!
In California, there are thousands of miles of coastline to see, but for our money, it doesn’t get any more beautiful or better than Monterey. There are incredible sand beaches to enjoy, and Monterey is a fantastic town to vacation in, filled with unique shops, restaurants, and experiences.
Before you leave Monterey, make sure you take a quick trip 30 miles south to witness the awe-inspiring views of Big Sur!
Olympic National Park, Washington
When you think of West Coast beaches, you probably think of California—but don’t underestimate the natural beach beauty states like Oregon and Washington have to offer. There are many to choose from, but Olympic National Park in Washington is at the top of our list!
If you love hiking, climbing, and camping as much as beach days, this is the place for you! Take a weekend to explore all the forests, rivers, mountains, and beaches in the wondrous Olympic National Park.
