Top American Beach Vacations This Summer

South Beach – Miami, Florida

Miami’s South Beach neighborhood has it all. Amazing beaches, wild nightlife, trendy restaurants, and swanky hotels. People come to South Beach to be seen. While you’ll see plenty of gorgeous human beings sunbathing in chairs on the beach, you might find that the actual swimming is kept to a minimum.

South Beach is famous for their all-day clubs – posh lounges where you can drink and eat sushi poolside during the day, then dance and mingle all night. South Beach is definitely a top destination for amazing bachelor and bachelorette parties.

Head of the Meadow Beach – Cape Cod, Massachusetts

Most people don’t picture beach vacations when they think of Massachusetts. However, Head of the Meadow Beach (located along the Cape Cod National Seashore) is one of the most underrated vacation spots in the state.

Not only are there plenty of opportunities for swimming and other water sports, Head of the Meadow Beach allows camping, so you can sleep a few feet away from the water if you’re feeling adventurous. There have been over 1,000 shipwrecks in this area, and you can even see the wreck of the Frances, which sunk in 1872, from the beach during low tide.

Ocracoke Lifeguarded Beach – Outer Banks, North Carolina

Ocracoke is a long, narrow island located off the coast of North Carolina. It’s a remarkable place because except for one small residential area, the rest of the island is parkland and waterfront.

To get to the Lifeguarded Beach, you’ll have to cross a long boardwalk, which puts you really close to the water. There aren’t many amenities, so if you’re coming for the day, you’ll need to bring things like towels, umbrellas, and snacks with you. However, as a trade off you get a beach that’s much less busy then the rest of the Outer Banks area, where you can spot wild horses, hunt for shells, and swim uninterrupted.
