What beach do you go to in real life?

Stone Harbor, NJ!


Also like: Avalon, Wildwood, Cape May, Sea Isle, and OC NJ. My family and I have enjoyed OC MD, too, and Rehoboth Beach DE, and Bahia Honda State Park beaches in FL, and Westerly/Misquamicut RI, and Cozumel Mexico, and South Hampton and Jones Beach NY, and Hua Hin Thailand ...

Can you tell we LOVE going to the beach?

    Most secluded was a beach in the Grenadines. It was a Spring Break trip when I was in college. Nothin' but conch shells and fallen logs in the sand as far as the eye could see. (Funny story - I dried out as many conch shells as I could and took them home in my carry-on luggage. I got stopped by security because the x-ray apparently made the shells look like the skeletons of murdered children. :oops: )


    EDIT: A lot of beaches seem more secluded in the off-season, too. I forgot Napatree Point (also near Westerly, RI) and I can't believe I forgot Montauk, NY. Hubby and I went there in November one year and the beach was all ours MWAHAHAHA.

    If you ever go to Stone Harbor, there is a sandbar that's an island at low tide, accessible only by boat. It can be really packed with picnic-ers at the height of the summer, but otherwise it's more private.

    Figured I would start a topic on which beaches everyone goes to since it's summer and Squidport is finally here !!! haha I will be leaving not this coming week but next with my lovely girl friend and we will be headed to Ocean City Maryland . I usually go to sea side, wildwood and Jersey beaches but I been to Oc Maryland when I was younger and figured I would give Jersey a rest this year. So what about you guys any good vacations coming up or whats your favorite beach/boardwalk/etc.??? :D

    My husband is from Columbia, MD and he went to Ocean City every summer while growing up! We went there a few years ago with his parents and our children, it was pretty fun. I am a Midwestern girl, so it was a new experience for me. We live right on Lake Michigan now, I guess I am always technically at the beach...not so much fun in the winter.

    I rarely go to the beach anymore, but when I do, it's on Galveston Island. Yeah, I know, I know, crappy beach with crappy water. But I grew up going to beaches on the Texas Gulf. I know the beaches, I know the water, I know the sea life, I know the shells. I'm very comfortable in this water, and I go to the beach to swim in the ocean, so comfort with the water and the critters in it matters. Living in Houston means it's reasonably close, too. So much better than swimming in a pool.

    Newport Beach, CA or San Clemente beach in California too. I'd like to go to Laguna Beach this summer. I've lived in Southern California my entire life and have never gone there!

    Unfortunately we don't go the sea beach often, it's long trip for us; but we to go to Walden Pond:

    Beautiful year round- not just for swimming, you can hike around the pond too.

    Of course, I don't swim at the main beach because it looks like this during busy season:

    Instead I walk on the hiking path around the pond and find one of the many un-lifeguarded (there are only lifeguards at the main beach) access points.


    Bonus points for knowing which literary author is known for staying at and writing about Walden Pond.

    That would be Thoreau. Growing up in Lowell will do that.
