3 great US beaches

Summer is back!  So, let's explore 3 great beaches, right here in the US!

#1.  California 

Orange County's Crystal Cove State Park  isn't just about the beach — gracefully curved coves with reliable waves for surfing and bodysurfing.  On the inland side of Pacific Coast Highway, park trails climb foothills for killer views of the ocean you just swam in.  If swimming and hiking make you hungry, grab a cheeseburger and a rich milkshake at Ruby's Shake Shack.

#2.  Florida 

It was for good reason that Siesta Beach , just 15 minutes from downtown Sarasota, was chosen the nation's best beach in 2011 by Stephen Leatherman (aka Dr. Beach). Follow the gently sloping beach to the calm, warm Gulf waters and dig your toes into the powdery white-quartz sand. Lifeguards and free parking make it safe and easy for everyone to enjoy.

#3.  Hawaii 

There aren't many long stretches of sandy shoreline in Kailua-Kona on the volcanic Big Island, so the 45-minute drive along the Kohala Coast to Hapuna Beach — the largest on the island — is worth the early wake-up. The beach is spacious enough to spread out. And if you still need more room, consider the clear waters, where you can snorkel and swim in calm conditions and body-board in the surf. Grab some snacks from KTA Superstore or a plate lunch from Pine Tree Cafe and make a day of it.
