The Options: Beach or Mountains

Beach or Mountains

Option 1: Style Me Pretty | Option 2: Taylor McCutchan Photography

In honor of our family vacation this week, I’m shying away from home stuff JUST for a little bit. And since I know we all have our own opinion when it comes to a vacation destination, I want to know…Are you a beach bum when you have the opportunity to get away? Or are you more interested in a mountain retreat?

Option 1: I’m pretty picky myself when it comes to beach vacations. I can’t stand over-commercialized places like Myrtle beach (a biggie around these east coast parts), preferring a more secluded and relaxed vibe. But there’s also the idea of a super glamorous exotic vacation to somewhere like Punta Cana or Mexico. Even if I had all the money in the world though, I still think I’d choose our current location in South Carolina.

Option 2: If John were to vote in today’s post, I’m pretty sure he’d choose the mountains. While his excuse for not joining us this year was a lack of vacation time available at work, I have a secret theory that a beach vacation just doesn’t interest him much. He’d rather take off for a long weekend away in the mountains – a cabin, a fishing pole and a campfire are all he needs to have a good time. And I can definitely wrap my head around that notion…

I’m torn!

    It depends, for me-when it’s been cold and awful for a long winter, I could definitely use a beach (and I’m a water gal as it is!) but I’ve also been up the Hudson a bit to the mountains in upstate NY and I have to say, a weekend completely immersed in nature is just as enjoyable!

    We’re toying with a kind of mountain-beach vacation later this fall in Big Sur! You can rent a yurt in the mountains with a sea view!

    MOUNTAIN~~~~ I don’t like to clean my feet & shoes of sand… it’s like after a day in the beach, it doesn’t clear the shoe of the sand even after a week. Also, I am not too fond of being out in the sun for too long.
