Ideas for Family Summer Beach Vacations

By: Evvie Meier

With summer quickly approaching, many sun-starved travelers are enthusiastically planning their favorite beach vacations. For travelers who crave the white sand and ocean breezes but dread the crowds and hassle of popular beaches, skip the busy beach areas and head to a quieter beach without the crowds.

Old Stand-By: Myrtle Beach, S.C.; New Destination: Topsail Beach

East coasters looking for some peaceful fun in the sun can trade-in the chaotic Myrtle Beach for the laid back Topsail Beach. Located approximately 45 minutes north of Wilmington, this North Carolina beach is a quiet island peppered with rental homes, condos, and motels.

Old Stand-By: South Beach, Florida; New Destination: Jensen Beach

While many beach-goers are drawn to Miami’s bustling beaches, travelers looking for a quieter Florida beach should head to Jensen Beach. Located two hours north of Miami, Jensen beach offers the sun, surfing and swimming that beachgoers expect from Florida, but without the hassle of busy crowds

Old Stand-By: Dewey Beach, Delaware; New Destination: Delaware Seashore State Park

Located South of Dewey, Delaware’s Seashore State Park provides a six-mile stretch of uncrowned beaches. The Seashore State Park offers beachgoers hours of relaxing time in the sun, as well as opportunities for fishing, boating, and surfing.

Old Stand-By: Long Beach, California; New Destination: El Segundo Beach

For west coast beach lovers, El Segundo Beach offers a pleasant respite from the more popular beaches, like Long Beach. This uncrowded California beach offers miles of Pacific oceanfront beach, paved trails, nearby piers, and downtown El Segundo is just a mile away.
