Sorry it's so far for US hubbers, but Broadstairs, Kent, UK. Not Ramsgate or Margate to each side, but Broadstairs is a very special and lovely little seaside resort and, despite all the attempts, not completely ruined by the horrors of 21st century England: the supers, car-parks, one-way streets, hooligans and all. There are seven great beaches, about 100 pubs, four of which are top drinkeries. Lots of medium priced lodging and a cute old harbour with lots of memories. In fact, I like it so much, I decided to be born there!
