July-August vacations for beach vacations (and a little more to see)

Valera_K ” 03 Jun 2012, 12:03 am

Going for 3 weeks in the U.S. (me, wife, son), for a beach vacation and of course that nitset look (a cultural vacation). Naturally want more on the beach than to ride somewhere, but can not decide where to go, although nevertheless booked a hotel in Manhattan Beach, LA in August (second half). Despite the fact that we (the whole family) love the temperature at least 30, and preferably in the 40s, we are embarrassed to go to Florida, as there is something about hurricanes and something like that at this time of year. Also have read a few topics about LA in terms of rest on the beach and. now already in strong doubts, what to do and where to go. although really wanted to see the valley of death and bet on the rocks

PS: So where better to vacation in July/August (max.Sep) in the U.S.? What about sunbathing / swimming. and somewhere to go (within one day), that niether view. Because I do not want to go for the first time and get a negative experience.

August is definitely the west coast, as the east coast is quite hot at this time. Try to cancel your reservations for Manhattan Beach and pick something more decent (Santa Monica or at least Vinus Beach). Anything south of the airport, try not to consider. The area for a quiet holiday – is from Vinus to Santa Monica, partly to Malibu (but there, of course, the village and almost no service – wild beaches). You have to live 1-2 km away from the ocean at most, because further to the mainland will be hot, and the ocean is cold (21-23 degrees) and the coast is very good. For “sunbathing and swimming” US is not the best place, because the ocean is the ocean itself (waves, currents and other inconveniences). A little better in Hawaii. If you can – spend a couple of weeks in California (LA, Las Vegas, parks, SF), and then fly to Hawaii – they are more comfortable for sunbathing and swimming.

“We are not afraid of heat, it’s just + for us. But here to sit in a room because of the rains, the possibility of a hurricane or for example the possibility of migration of any creature in the water at this time of year – it scares and of course would not really want to be the only beach And that will be on us as savages look ))))

PS: What else can be considered, in terms of this type of recreation? 2/3 beach and 1/3 sightseeing.

Unfortunately. vacation in the summer + my son vacation. And fly for 3-4 days at a different time of year, somehow. Therefore, and hope for local help.

Could you clarify why you don’t like Manhattan Beach and why you can’t consider anything south of the airport? I just live in Long Beach, have toured the area in a few months and I honestly don’t understand why everyone is so in favor of Santa Monica and why is Huntington Beach, Redondo Beach and other coastal towns any worse?

When it comes to Los Angeles city beaches, Manhattan Beach is one of the best, along with Hermosa Beach and Redondo Beach. So, I disagree with what Andrew wrote. Santa Monica is more touristy and crowded, usually. The beach itself is not as nice. However, Santa Monica is closer to Beverly Hills, Westwood Village and other interesting areas of LA. Given that the roads in LA can be heavily congested with cars, you can get stuck in traffic on trips from Manhattan Beach to other places.

For a beach vacation, you might consider a short flight to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico (by plane very close and inexpensive from LA): https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&biw . ucas+beach

What’s there to think about? Take Mexico, you’ll never get out of the country again. All you need – heat, warm water, a touch of beach exoticism and Mexican. If you’re such an avid beach goer, you’ll take your breath away. After a week there, then go back to the States and hit the parks with a stop in San Francisco, if you are fans of cultural treasures.

We had the same question last year. But it was decided in favor of the east coast, Florida. Were there from July 1 to July 31. No hurricanes. Well two or three times there were tropical downpours. But they did not interfere with our beach vacation, or visiting the parks in Orlando. Our son was 8 years old and it was more relevant than the “rocky” parks. We lived on the Atlantic coast. We rented a townhouse in New Smyrna Beach about 200 yards from the beach (if you count straight ahead). Paid $1909 a month. And this year we’re going to the other side of Florida – Mexican Gulf. But in California, as I was advised forum members – not really buy, the ocean is cold.

I join the question about the beaches on the east coast. Planning a family with kids (high school and college girl) to the US in August – NYC, DC, Orlando parks + coastal vacations. Don’t want to go to the west coast right away. This is our first trip across the Atlantic. It’s going to be a couple of weeks trip, we want to dedicate it to one coast. Miami is not recommended – rainy season, heat and hurricanes. Where should I go? I heard we should go to the New England coast. I’m just not sure what towns to look at? Please advise.

Probably in New York and Washington will be very hot and humid.

As for beaches, Cape Cod is very popular among the “Russians”. I know that many people go in summer to the town of Dennis Port: http://goo.gl/maps/O4SV quite quiet, clean and a lot like the Baltics. There are hotels, motels, but you can also rent an apartment.
