Mountains. I was born & raised on the Coastal Prairie...don't care for sand, salty air, skeeters, and hurricanes.

One of the most difficult questions to answer, it took me years to come up with the right answer. It is both, but of course. That is why I became a half-back / snow bird. Late fall to early spring, the beaches of Saint Petersburg and area surrounding it. Late spring, after the pollen season, till Mid October, after the first wave of autumn color, the North Georgia Mountains. Hence the half-back, I was born on Cape Cod , moved to Florida in the late 80s, after 20 yrs., up to the mountains to cool off.

Mountains. Beach is nice to visit, but flat and claustrophobic on the land side. Give me seeing hills forever anyway you turn any day. And walking up and up until you can see forever. Problem is, my husband wants the beach, and I love the mountains. Will just have to work long enough until we can afford both!

The beach for sure. I want to be able to hear the weather and waves 24/7.

Oh, the beach without question. It calms me. I love the smell and sounds. If you haven't visited Costa Rice, I highly recommend.

At the front end, let me confess I absolutely despise cold weather. I'm 74 with a little arthritis and cold weather sucks. Warm, sunny days with a breeze at the ocean is ideal.

I was raised inland and the woods, mountains, lakes were my stomping grounds, camping, hiking, fishing, some sking – loved it all, cabins in the mountains on holidays – wonderful.

Then I turned 18, joined the US Navy, and fell in love with the ocean. Fishing, boating, sailing, diving, snorkeling, laying on the beach, boat drinks, bikinis, fresh seafood any time....For this old geezer the ocean has been my best girl for many decades. I still enjoy a brief trip to the mountains in the summer, but usually can't wait to get back to Mother, Mother Ocean...(Thanks Jimmy)....

As a child, I vacationed with my parents at the beach.  One year, after I was married, I went to the Adirondack mountains with my wife. I learned that I am really a mountain man.  I never went back to the beach for more than a day.
