Got vacation time to burn? You’re probably dreaming of palm trees and cocktails with umbrellas in them. While that’s a valid vacation choice, you might want to consider changing it up this year. Try to look past the standard trip to Hawaii. 

There are a ton of places around the US that you can visit that still offer a great view of the ocean. In fact, they're usually more varied than your standard beach resort town down south. Let’s take  a look at some of the coolest beach cities in the good old U.S.A.

Pacific Grove, CA

This town shares borders with other famous Californian beach town like Monterey, but it has far fewer visitors and beautiful Victorian architecture to take in as you gorge at one of the town's restaurants. 

Rehoboth, DE

Despite the fact that you've probably never heard of it before, this seaside resort area offers some of the most quintessential beach activities, including a classic boardwalk and tons of shopping options (there's even homemade saltwater taffy). 

Cape May, NJ

If you're hankering for a great East Coast beach experience, then this town has got everything you need, including lots of places to eat.

Tybee Island, GA

Feel like getting away from it all? An island is a great choice. This one is known for its dolphins and picturesque lighthouse. 

Chatham, MA

If you've got any interest in boating and fishing, then you'll definitely want to check out this community. It's got a ton of museums and, of course, crab to feast upon. 

Cannon Beach, OR

This community offers the perfect Pacific Northwest beach town experience. There's tons of hiking to do and plenty of museums to check out. 

Wrightsville Beach, NC

Here, you can hit the waves for kayaking or paddle boarding, or you can opt for a night out on the town at a restaurant or bar. The area is known for its clean beaches, despite the amount of traffic the town gets.
