Living near the Chesapeake Bay and being a boater for years, I'd have to say the beach. We vacation in Ocean City, Cancun and Jamaica. Can't wait to hit the beach.

I lived by the beach from 1998 to 2012 in the Florida Panhandle but lived on a coastal dune lake. Recently moved back to north Georgia to be closer to family and the only thing that would have made it better would have been to find a lake house to buy. To me, that would be the best of both world - in the foothills on water!!

I do like a hotel room on the beach because it is wonderful to fall asleep with the sound of the ocean, however, overall my husband and I really like the mountains.  The mountains bring back memories of summer vacations as a youngster spent at the Poconos with my family.  You have no idea at the time that wonderful memories are being made of time spent with your family that you can never get back.

The mountains would win hands down. I like the snow-covered Rockies to the Blue Ridge Mountains. The beach isn't for me. I don't like being in the sun (I'm a fair redhead), and burn easily. The mountains are so majestic. I feel small next to them. I like standing on top of them, looking down at the world.

I would love to live by Big Sur. You have the mountains and the ocean. The best of both worlds.

I have always loved the beach...the smell of the ocean and the sounds of the waves and cries of the birds are the most calming sounds to me. My husband, however, is a mountain man... He loves the silence of the woods. We compromise...summer in the mountains, winter by the beach.

Luckily I have the best of both worlds.  I live in Corvallis, OR, which is between the Cascades and the ocean.  Can be in the mountains or at the coast in under an hour .....
