Posted on August 16, 2012


Sadly, summer is coming to a close.  It may be time to prepare for the new school year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get one more beach trip in before school starts.  Beat the summer heat with a dip in one of these beautiful beaches.  MarketMAPS looks at the best beaches in the US.

The Best Beaches in the US

St. Pete Beach, Florida

Sugary-white sand, dolphins frolicking just off shore and eight major barrier islands make St. Pete Beach a postcard-perfect seaside destination. Situated on a peninsula off Florida’s west coast, it is an ideal place to experience the state’s wild beauty and the magical golden rays of the SunshineState.

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Sixty miles of sandy beaches provide ample opportunities of things to do.  Myrtle Beach boasts some of the best beaches on America’s East Coast, which are distinguished by panoramic views of the Atlantic, calm waters and soft white sand. An ideal location for swimming and sunbathing.

Honolulu, Hawaii

Honolulu is a legendary surfing destination. But even if you don’t know a boogie board from a surfboard, you’ll find a beach here that appeals to you.  There are a variety of activities available for you to do at one of Honolulu’s many beaches: snorkeling, body boarding, sun bathing, and more.

San Diego, California

Beaches and bays dot the coast of California’s second-largest city. Top-rated, family-friendly CoronadoBeach is set among turn-of-the-century mansions. Other gorgeous sandy spots include BlacksBeach, where sunbathers go au naturel, and La Jolla Shores, popular for snorkeling and kayaking.
