Beach or City?

Updated on July 20, 2015

What do you prefer the most?

When deciding a destination for vacation, my family ends up being divided between those who always prefer a beach destination and those who want to go to a village or a city. In both cases there are many options for fun, learning and feel good, however there are marked differences that give rise to family discussion

Points favoring the beach!

  1. Sun
  2. Sea
  3. Breeze
  4. Lively music
  5. Water activities
  6. Walking along the shore
  7. Relaxed nightlife
  8. Sea food
  9. Long breaks in a hammock
  10. Amazing sunrises and sunsets

A tip to avoid having to fight anymore is inserting destinations: once on the beach and once in the city. It's good not to conduct the same program even in the summer, because in the long run can be very boring and you lose the chance to explore cool stuff!

      I live near the beach but we don't have great weather so I can see the appeal of a tropical beach with turquoise water and palm trees. I like city breaks and discovering culture and architecture... but mostly I like to be in nature.

      Definitely the city. I find it impossible to lay around on a beach without getting bored. I like to move around and do things.
