Beach vacations all over the country

Everyone loves a beach vacation. And when it comes to beach vacations in the US, there's something for all sorts to look forward to. Scoot down South Carolina way and the barrier islands are dressed in manicured golf courses and peppered with moss-caked oak groves. Head from there to North Carolina to catch grand hunting lodges on the wind-buffeted shored of the beautiful Outer Banks. Skip to another coastline and you find sleek Malibu rentals or surf shacks in San Diego. And that's not even mentioning the Gulf of Mexico, where families and spring breakers have been escaping under the sun for decades.
