We do the same, except our beach home is Apalachicola. It is a city in Franklin County, Florida, United States, on the shore of Apalachicola Bay, an inlet of the Gulf of Mexico. (The only dog-friendly beaches left in FL.) The population was 2,231 at the 2010 census. Apalachicola is the county seat of Franklin County.near Applicalola - still unspoiled country

Well, it's a matter of personal taste that's influenced by personal experience....  However, for myself,  gimme year round living at the beach with some vacation trips into the mountains.      Explanation:   Driving on mountain roads during bad weather is scary....      Because of the ocean's effects, coastal roads don't stay frozen for very long   (they never freeze in states like Florida.)      For the East Coast,   Maine is the only place  where mountains are close to the sea.     You can stand on a mountain and you can see the ocean.    The situation on the West Coast is better.

MOUNTAINS! Born and raised in Colorado, I found peace and serenity in the mountains. Hike, ski, picnic -- always fewer people than at the beach. Cooler temperatures allow an escape from global warming that has made many parts of the USA too hot in the summer.

Exactly that, but in reverse.
