A Vacation - Where do you prefer to go on a vacation.

For me, it depends at which time of the year I am planning to go on a vacation. During summers, I would definitely prefer a cooler hill-station. But if it is monsoon/winter, then I would head towards a beach. Do you have any other idea of spending your vacation?

When on vacation I love to go on both. Beaches are great also, and so is Hills-station. I like very much to go to places. See beautiful sites.

Vacation, I would prefer to go to the beach especially during summer here. Sometimes we spend our vacation on hot spring resort during the cold months.

I would prefer to have a vacation by the beach. The reason for this is that I practically grew up in the mountains so when vacationing I would prefer to experience something else.

i love the beach, but i also love trekking and climbing activities. our country has lots of great beaches, along with it are islands that has ideal climbing and trekking spots. i easily get cold so and i dont even like air conditioning much coz it makes me freeze sometimes. so definitely i'd choose beach vacations whatever time of the year it is.

In summer i usually prefer beach.In the evening time,i feel comfortable in spending time in beach from evening 7:00 pm to 9:00pm.Their i eat mango slice.I enjoy the nature and i do walking along the beach by seeing the ship on it.There was a temple near to the beach in our place where we are staying.So,i go for the temple and eat icecream and spend some time with my family members.In winter i usually be in home or i simply i go for a movie.In extreme case i go for a new place and enjoy happily with my family members.

sunset - Sunset at Makassar
In my vacation, I will choose to go to the beach anytime if the beach is good,also in my place a lot of beach cause my country consist of around 100.000 island. In fact, I just came back from a vacation by the beach last Sunday. I spent five glorious days staying at two beachfront hotels, where the beach had fine sand, the hotels had tropical layouts and freeform resort pools also you can see sunset and sunrise from there. I really feel that I am on vacation, and I can laze all day by the sprawling lawn or white sands fronting the hotel, if I am tired I go shopping souvenier.

I'd like to go up in the mountains & "disappear" for awhile. Write poetry, get back to nature, etc.

I prefer to go to some Hill Statiosn for my vacations than the Beach. The reason is simple, I already stay very close to a Beach and so I dont find anything more interesting when I visit another beach for my vacation. But the place I stay is much hotter almost all the times of the year and so I prefer to visit a cold Hill station where I can cool myself and enjoy the natural beauties such as Mountains, waterfalls, flowers etc and have a good fun with them. I also think that when you visit a Hill stations, you have a lot of options to enjoy. But when you visit a Beach, you have just a very few options to have fun.

I SAW the beach on Tuesday. I was on a new part of the Ceaser's Casino in Atlantic City that is called "The Pier." It was quite neat. It was 10º cooler at the shore than inland in NJ during the time I was there, but I only saw the water thru windows.

Beach. I quite like the country side but the sea-side in my opinion is a family holiday and that's something I'm all about and I loved last year with my son. This year with him walking will be great! not long =D ~Joey

I would definitely prefer the beach. I love going to the beach. I love the sun and the sand. I always feel relaxed whenever I'm vacationing in the beach. I just the love the feeling of being near the sea. I wish my backyard was a beach.. lol.. =D

I’m not sure what a Hill Station is- But it’s ok- I prefer the beach- In the summer or winter- Only been to the Ocean twice in my life- I live in NY—no Ocean here- My daughter loves the beach and is begging to go back this summer- The hotter the better- I want to enjoy it and swim in the ocean- Dig for sand dollars and hermit crabs- Pick up pretty sea shells- that sort of thing. I went to the beach in the summer and once in the late Fall- I preferred the Summer!

Where I live, you either go south to a beach or north to the mountains where it is cooler. I'm definitely a mountain person and not a sun worshiper so I go north.

The beach is my least favorite place to spend much time. I don't like trying to walk on sand I hate getting it on me and in my shoes. I don't do bare feet. I hate any thing on the bottom of my feet. The water is so salty it feels sticky and dirty to me. I guess I would have to shoce someplsace in the mountians or the countey. To me the mountians are cool and refeshing. I'm not expected to take my shoes off and there can be lakes or pond to go swimming in that have fresh water so you don't feel sticky when you get out of the water.
