Looking to travel to some great beach towns in the U.S.?
The most popular beaches like Miami Beach, Newport Beach, Ocean City, and Myrtle Beach probably first come to mind… right?
However these beaches also rank as some of the country’s most populated and overcrowded beaches. If you’re looking to relax on a beachfront with nothing but the sound of waves, seagulls, and maybe just a handful of tourists, here are some of the best beaches to check out in the United States this season. They may not be huge secrets, but they will definitely help you stay ahead of the average beach-goer!
Once a winter home location to the Carnegie family, Cumberland is one of the few areas in the Georgia coast that are still untamed and uninhabited. The eighteen mile stretch of beach features marshes, dunes, and lush forests that have been left more or less untouched. Wild horses are often seen roaming across its white sandy beaches, alongside the few tourists who travel their yearly. The island can only be accessed via ferry, making it one of the country’s most secluded public beaches.
Newport, Rhode Island
Newport Rhode Island isn’t exactly a secret beach like many of the other beaches on this list. Albeit, it’s relatively well-known in New England, however it is almost never cramped with tourists or crowds. According to Homeaway, this seaside city once served as the “Summer White House” for both presidents Dwight Eisenhower and John F. Kennedy. Newport is also known for its world-renowned sailing, as well as for its fresh seafood and wines.
Orange Beach, Alabama
Orange Beach’s white sandy shores and warm gulf waters provide a great destination to visit if you’re along the southern coast. Although it is still a relatively popular beach town in the south, it is nowhere near the likes of Miami or Daytona Beach. Orange offers an array of entertainment and activities for families including concerts, cinemas, festivals, and even the Southeast’s largest Ferris Wheel!
New Braunfels, Texas
New Braunfels was originally settled by German settlers back in the day. However, as years have passed, the lakefront town has been turned into a beautiful vacation destination for many. The town offers an assortment of water sports and outdoor adventure activities, including rafting, water skiing, and fishing. Surrounding the lakefront properties are also family-friendly attractions like the Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch, and the Natural Bridge Caverns.
