Five Great Summer Beach Vacations for 2013
Monday, May 13, 2013
It’s been a long, strange spring that felt more like a lingering winter around most of the US. Cries of “fire the groundhog” were heard as we bundled up and endured several, late in the year, snowstorms. But, it looks like summer is finally arriving and everyone can jump (glide in with grace, if you prefer) in the ocean and enjoy the cool refreshing water. Yes, it’s vacation time!

You have planned your vacation, right??? You know, that place with the great pool, that awesome beach condo, the house with the amazing view? Well, better late than never! Look below for some fantastic ideas to cool off at the beach this summer. No more excuses. Go enjoy, relax and have a great summer vacation!

1) Coastal South Carolina – South Carolina lets you pick your beach speed. Ready to hit the ground running and do it all? Myrtle Beach is right up your alley. It has enough offerings and activities to keep you busy without even stepping onto the sand. On the other hand, there is the less commercial, more environmentally conscious Hilton Head Island. Both destinations offer great beaches and golf. In between the two areas lies Charleston with its historical charm and outlying island destinations.       Choose from over 200 VRC rentals in coastal SC.

2) Florida's Gulf Coast - this beautiful stretch of beaches is an amazing and affordable summer destination. “High season” includes winter and spring months with discounted rates offered for summer rentals. From Clearwater Beach south to Naples, you can choose from over 300 VRC homes on or near the clear turquoise blue water of the Gulf of Mexico.

3) The Outer Banks of North Carolina: The Outer Banks are a unique group of barrier islands stretching for over two hundred miles along the coast of North Carolina. Great surfing, fishing, and shell collecting make the OBX a popular vacation spot for many East Coast families. From the northern 4WD beaches of Carova with their wild Spanish mustangs, to the remote southern gem known as Ocracoke Island, the Outer Banks are a special vacation area. And, with over 16,000 rental homes available, you can always find something!

4) Coastal Maine: One word – gorgeous! The coast of Maine is a perfect location to do a little exploring. With so many little towns, each unique and inviting, you can go by car or map out a bike excursion and see the wide variety of rocky cliffs, sandy beaches and stunning scenery.       See over 70 vacation homes and pick your starting point.

The Gulf Coast of Texas
From Galveston all the way down to the end of South Padre Island, there are miles and miles of pretty beaches. Go surfing on South Padre, fishing in Port Aransas and hit the attractions on Galveston. Whether you like crowds and lots of activities or the solitude of a quiet beach, you can find the perfect spot on the Gulf Coast of Texas.
