Beaches are one of our favorite topics here at Local Love and Wanderlust. Whether it’s visiting the rocky coastline of the Pacific Northwest, the beautiful sandy shores of Southern California, or the wide expanse of beaches in the south, we love it all. We love ocean beaches from the Pacific west coast to the Atlantic east coast. The rocky shores of Washington state, the pebbled coast of Southern California, and the tepid warm waves of the Atlantic in South Carolina to the chilly coastal waves in Maine. We’re also huge fans of the Great Lakes, which are truly wonders and quite often feel like small oceans with a variety of unique shorelines.
