My Top 10 Favorite Beaches

My TOP 10 Favorite Beaches...from the perspective of a beach snob. It's no secret I LOATHE Minnesota winters.  However, I'm here to stay (until I retire) so my compromise with my husband is that we go to a beach EVERY winter or I will become Jack Nicholson from the "Shining."  He prefers I don't go mentally insane, so he obliges.  I've been fortunate enough to travel to quite a few beaches and my definition of a perfect beach is FEW people crowding me, SUGAR soft sand and CRYSTAL blue waters.  … [Read more...]
