View Full Version : Florida Or California?

06-30-2005, 08:32 PM
I'm planning a vacation, preferably a week in August which is my birfday month! I want white sandy beaches, picturesque views from the balcony of my hotel :) ...temps in the 80s+ during the day and not below 70 in the evenings....I don't want a bunch of crowds or any place that's too "touristy". For the bulk of my vacation I'd like to catch up on some reading, get some SERIOUS rays and just RELAX.

Can anyone suggest a locale along the Coast of California or Florida that would meet my needs?

I'm originally from Cali so I am biased :D ....I would definitely recommend the west coast. No chance of a hurricane or freak tropical storm occuring that would ruin your vacation. So how about

Laguna Beach, California

Or even

Santa Monica, California

This hotel is absolutely Beautiful and is right on the beach
