There’s just something about warm weather and beaches that go together. Is it the sand, the surf, the relaxation? Or a little bit of all three. As we travel around during summer vacations to soak up the sun, where are some of the best places to go? Take a look at our top 5 must-see beaches across the USA:
Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts
With a variety of beaches to choose from at Martha’s Vineyard, it’s difficult to choose just one as they each offer sights not to be missed. Our favorite choice is to spend some time and visit them all.

Clearwater Beach, Florida
Spread along a narrow 3 mile stretch of the Pinellas Peninsula on the Golf Coast, Clearwater straddles Tampa Bay to the east and the Gulf of Mexico to the west. Visitors can relax on the beach and swim or spend the day playing beach volleyball, taking a dolphin-watching cruise, rent a fishing boat, or go parasailing.

Manele Bay, Hawaii
One of the world’s most perfect stretches of sand, Hulopo’e Beach can be found at the base of Manele Bay, a designated marine preserve. The Bay is filled with colorful fish making snorkeling and diving a must. Plus swimming in 70-degree water doesn’t hurt either.
