If I could afford it, I would love to see the majestic peaks of the Grand Tetons every single day. Beaches are OK, but I can get bored quickly hanging out on the beach. Short visits maybe, but no permanent stay. So, mountains for me.

I love them both, however, the Southern beaches are what I would pick, as I live in Indiana,  and the winters here are long and cold.  Give me warm breezes off the ocean please.

That's a tough one!  I currently live near the beach but love the green lush mountains, foliage changes and crisp mountain air especially in the fall.  Fishing is my favorite pasttime so I love being on the pier on the Atlantic ocean in Florida but then again I could go fishing in lakes and streams if I lived in the mountains.  The only thing that keeps me in Florida is having three of my children here.

They are both better to visit, now and then, rather than live by.  They can be quite dangerous and unpredictable, as are many of the most beautiful places on earth.

Crisp, clean, cool fresh air.  You can't beat the mountains.

I cannot stand heat or too much sun, so beaches are OUT for me. Mountains, clear air, lower temperatures, running water, 4 rather than 2 legged animals, trees and shade-no contest.

In the mountains, with a stream or lake close by and neighbors who are not.

Well, I live in the mountains and would not want to live any where else. The sound of the ocean coming in at night is rather scary to me.The ocean is just too big and is an endless nothing.The salt water is not fun to play in when it keeps coming up in waves onto you. Give me a nice cool poolside in the mountains any day. I prefer the solid ground I stand on.
