From outdoor activities to cultural pursuits, the beautiful city of Charlotte, North Carolina has a little something for everyone. It’s thoroughly modern, yet thoroughly charming, and the perfect place for a few days (or more!) of family fun.
The Oleta River runs through the northern reaches of the metropolitan Miami area. While Miami is famous for its glitz and glamor, over the top shopping, and clubs, as well as its showy Atlantic Ocean beaches, those from farther away may miss out on this, the largest of all Florida’s urban state parks. Locally it is thought of as the Central Park of the Sunshine State. It is an incredible natural escape from the glittery city that surrounds it.
When travelers envision the perfect beach getaway, the first place that usually comes to mind is usually somewhere in Florida or maybe even the Caribbean. Most wouldn’t think of the northeast, but believe it or not, there are some beach gems located there. For example, Cape Cod National Seashore located in Massachusetts, which was founded by President John F. Kennedy on August 7, 1961.
It’s probably safe to assume that “the beach” isn’t the first thing that comes to your mind when you think about Texas. For states like California or Florida, sure, but Texas?
While there’s a lot of amazing things you can do and see all over Texas from rodeos to football to barbecue, there’s also a ton of shoreline that is ready for you to explore. One of the best spots to really enjoy unspoiled water and islands is at the Padre Island National Seashore.
When most people hear “Washington state”, they generally think about cold, rainy weather, coffee, and grunge music. However, what many people don’t realize is that Washington is actually home to some beautiful beaches. It may not always be the tropical day with your feet in the water and sand, but for those seeking a day away from the hustle and bustle of Seattle, a day at the beach is always a great idea.
You’ll find Hilton Head in the beautiful low country area of South Carolina. It’s right on the Atlantic Ocean, and beyond being a beach town, it offers a ton of natural beauty, food, and activities. So, it’s no wonder that millions of people flock to Hilton Head every year.
Hilton Head is actually a barrier island that’s just about 42 square miles and is located just off the South Carolina and Georgia borders. It’s a great destination that is especially popular with people who are looking for a truly relaxing place to spend time, let’s take a look.
Summer is officially over, but that doesn’t mean you can’t bundle up a bit, enjoy the ocean breeze, and dip your toes into the water if you’re particularly brave. Plus, the off-season means that there’s even more room to spread out and soak up the sun.
