Cocoa Beach, Florida
Siesta Key, Florida
BEACH BUM
If Mexico feels too far away and you're looking for
a closer-to-home destination to bask in the sun,
visit Florida, the nation's #1 vacation state. Why
do vacationers love it? In part, because of the
beaches: There. Are. So. Many. Options. To narrow
it down, choose a side-Atlantic Ocean or Gulf of
Mexico. Atlantic-facing beaches tend to have
golden-colored, seashell-punctuated sands and
rougher waves, which means people can surf.
Some of the best waves, for those hoping to
learn to ride or those who already know how, are
found at family-friendly Cocoa Beach. Miami's
South Beach offers up similar strands, but a
completely different feel. Here, it's glitz and
glamour, art deco and high-end cuisine. On
Florida's west coast, the strands tend to be soft
and white, kissed by the gentle waves of the gulf.
The water is nearly translucent. Check out
Clearwater Beach near Tampa or Siesta Key near
Sarasota for proof. Families love both-for their
casual vibe and extra things to do, such as the
Clearwater Marine Aquarium and a playground
right on the beach at Siesta Key. Florida's
panhandle features the same white sands, found
The Lodge at Gulf State Park, a Hilton Hotel, Alabama
at popular Pensacola Beach or ADA-accessible
Henderson Beach inside the eponymous state
park near Destin. Those same sugar-sand
beaches extend to Alabama's Gulf Coast, where
Orange Beach and Gulf Shores await with kidfriendly
attractions and the only LEED-certifi ed
accommodations in the area. The Lodge at Gulf
State Park promotes a sustainable stay
through its practices and focus on education
about the nine ecosystems that surround the
property. At this Hilton Hotel, you can be a
beach bum while also being a beach preserver.
