Whether you live overseas and are looking for the best beaches to get wild at this summer or are living the American dream, you've come to the right place. If there's one thing that the United States is known for, it's incredible, pristine, sandy beaches. So, what are you waiting for? Let's figure out where this summer season is going to take you.
Yes, we are talking about that beach MTV recently launched a new reality television show about. However, as someone who has frequented Siesta Key on the regular, we can tell you that it is not like the show. Well, other than the teal blue waters, waves, and baby powder white sand. Oh, and plenty of beach babes for both men and women to frolic on the sandy shores with!
Head to the other side of the coast and check out Coronado Beach in Southern California. It’s an epic experience that you truly can’t find anywhere else. The sand is so fine that it actually sparkles in the sunlight and if you’re asking us, this is definitely a must-see beach that’s worthy of you leaving your footprints on.
With a name like ‘Ocean City’, you can’t go wrong. Just be sure to stick to the southern end of the strip. This is where you find all the excitement you’re looking for – from mini golf to surf shops, greasy (and delicious) food, a Ferris wheel, a Jamaican-themed bar and much more. This is the place for day and night fun.
You don’t have to be a Jersey Shore fan or know what ‘GTL’ stands for to actually hit up the Jersey Shore. This is, inarguably, one of the most famous boardwalks in the united states. The beaches are just as amazing and the nightlife is absolutely wild. If you’re looking for nights you’ll never forget, or rather, never remember, this where to go.
When you think of Washington or anywhere on the Pacific Northwest, you rarely think of beaches. Instead, you envision massive mountains, lush forests, caribou, moose and hidden waterfalls. While there’s certainly nothing wrong with any of that (all the more reason to take a trip here), the ocean shorelines are just stunning and full of excitement out in the wild, whether it’s shopping, surfing or snorkeling off of the sandy shores.
Alright, we know that Alabama doesn’t necessarily scream excitement, but when was the last time you were actually there, particularly in Gulf Shores? While this beach is not as exciting as the Jersey Boardwalk or Clearwater Beach in Florida, it has all the beach you’re looking for and often times, for a fraction of the price.
And a trip here also means empty beaches, open space to surf, zip-lining and of course, a trip to the legendary Flora-Bama bar where you literally drink in two states at the exact same time.
Yet another must-see this summer season is Cannon Beach, Oregon. Since it’s also in the Pacific Northwest, you get a combination of excitement – from sea life and sandy shores during the day to wildlife, waterfalls and lush forests at night. And trust us, the beaches are absolutely out of this world… And we can’t forget to mention that Cannon Beach has some killer beach bars.
So, pack your suitcase, retro shirts, surfboard, and swimsuits. Whether you’re hitting the road with the guys, taking the lovely lady for a trip or are simply looking for some waves to crash, these are the top beaches in the United States to get wild at this summer.
