What makes the perfect beach? To me, it's soft white sand that makes the water appear aqua in color, yet so clear I can get neck-deep and see my feet on the endless soft blanket. The waves keep things interesting, but the turbulence is not unsafe. Bonus points go to any beach where I can swim around with my snorkel and interact with the sea life.
After a long road trip between West Palm Beach and Key West, we've uncovered our favorite beaches of the east coast of deep South Florida, as well as my personal favorite beach of the entire Continental USA! Here is the rundown of all 8.
My “bucket list” – all the places I want to visit before I “kick the bucket” – is long. I’ve checked a lot off the list around the world, yet I still have destinations close to my Texas latitude and longitude. Sometimes, it's harder to make time to visit places closer to home than bucket list places halfway around the world. But, this won't be any local road trip. It will take us through seven states and deep into Mexico as we uncover secrets and share them.
I often promote solo travel, but partner travel is ideal here so I will be traveling with my girlfriend. For road trips, it only makes sense to have multiple drivers, and the extra body doesn't affect the price of gas, nor the cost of a camp site or hotel room. Sharing will be more cost-effective and experience-effective as sharing an experience increases its value! Here's a preview of the trip.
