Beach vacation

Team beach is definitely the way to go. The breeze, the sand, the ocean what more could one want?

Living in Florida means sunshine and endless beach days. However, the school year is a very busy time, so it is difficult to take time and break away from your day-to-day schedule. During summer it is important to take that time to give yourself a mental health recharge and give your body and brain rest from the hectic year it has been. 

One of the best ways to spend summer is going on vacation to a tropical destination. Of course, other locations are beautiful to stay at, but nothing compares to the beach during June and July. There are many activities to participate in while lying on the warm sand or swimming in the water. Some ways to keep yourself occupied at the beach are tanning in the sun, surfing, swimming, playing sports, finding shells, having a picnic, reading, listening to music on the sand, or even taking pretty waterfront pictures.  

While the mountains are a great place to escape the hot weather and have an adventurous, snowy vacation experience. The beach is the most popular choice among vacation goers to spend the sunny months of summer. It is a tradition in some families to go to the same beach every year and maybe even stay at the same place as it was the years before that. A popular get- together idea with teens is renting a big house at the beach for all your friends to hang out in. Over the summer Instagram is packed with pictures from beach trips with friends and staying for some time, creating unforgettable memories.  

“The psychology of why we like beaches is definitely tied to the irresistible, all- around positive vibe that surrounds it,” Conquest Maps said. 

The beach will leave you sweltering on the hot sand, drenched in cool salty water in a matter of minutes. The sight of the beach is one of its main qualities. The suns sets at dusk shooting pastel colors through the sky, to the middle of the day with the water and sky are crystal blue, matching in comforting colors that leaves residents relaxed and calm.   

From activities that get your heart racing to listening to your favorite song on full blast, the beach is the right spot for you this summer.
