    I love both the beach and the city. We like to stagger our vacations. One year do a relaxing, beach location, then explore a new city the next year.

    I’m definately a beach girl… sand, hot weather, sun, ocean and a Marguarita in my hands and I’m set!

    @panterapeach:  I’m totally with you on this one! Beach all the way! I love touring other cities, but with all the walking, etc. I need a few days to relax afterwards!

    Mountains all the way!!  I have never been a beach person, mainly because I always get horribly burned.  I get bored on the beach too.

    I like going to the mountains where we can rock climb, hike, camp, etc.  There’s more to do, and usually more to see.

    My ideal vacation, though, is none of the above.  I would pick going to explore a historical location, museum, or landmark no matter where it’s located.

    I live at the beach now so I’m going with city.  I guess if I hardly ever had the opportunity to just lay on the beach and drink, then that would be fun, but I’ve done it so much over the years that I’m over it.  I grew up in the city, and I miss city life.

    Well I see the mountains everyday, we live in them. I love it, and this will always be home, but to me a perfect vacation is cool drinks on a beach, where I can swim in the ocean, bask in the sun, and build sand castles with my darling son. πŸ™‚

    BEACH!! My DH and I have already decided a few years ago that the plan is to retire by our mid 60’s, sell our house, buy a 1 bedroom condo or house right on the beach! And we don’t even care where as long as we can see the ocean. πŸ™‚  We both just love the beach.

    It’s a tossup between cities and mountains for me. I HATE the beach! I’ve got sun allergies … and I also really can’t stand the way that sand sticks to your feet (or other body parts) after you’ve gone swimming. I’d rather go to the moon!

    Oh noes!  I like cities, I can walk, buy things I can’t buy at home, and street food!  I don’t like cities, because even if I set out first thing in the morning, I’m not going to get to explore it like I want.  I still have the other half of NYC’s Chinatown to explore, and I can’t, because it’s been years since I last went, so the half I’ve explored has likely changed… The trouble with visiting cities.  I don’t even live near any proper cities, bah.  Also, city noise/air isn’t very relaxing, but it’s not like non-city areas are even better.

    Mountains.  SNOWBOARD TRIP.  Other than that, I don’t like the cold.  I live in a pretty mountainous area as it is, so most of our day trips are mountainous.  There’s only so much exploring you can do in ski-towns anyway.  

    Beach.  I’m iffy on beaches, there’s something bothersome about the ocean (lakes/ponds/etc).  I love the humidity and heat, but everyone else hates it, and so I end up sitting around bored.  I’m not one to sit around and tan, I’m dark enough already!  Also, I don’t want to put people off of their beach-going experience, and it’s hard enough to find reasonably-priced swimwear. πŸ™
