Hi Sarah! I would definitely prefer a trip to beah rather than a trip to mountains. I know mountains have their own impeccable beauty and mountains always attract me, however, I enjoy more on sea beach. Playing in water, walking on the beach and watching sun-set or sun-rise from the beach is a superlative experience and I just love that. Incidently, I live in plains and both mountains and sea beaches are quite from my place. However, whenever we plan a trip for outing, we go to either of the places.

I am not really into all that sun and sand. I prefer to go where there is shade and it is cooler. I love the mountains. Where I live the mountains are an hour closer than the beach.

Hi Sarah! I agree with you that mountains have their own beauty and it is cooler in mountains. However, every place has its own charm and attraction, comparison will be difficult to draw.

We have beautiful beaches here in our place and love it soo much so I guess I would rather be on beach than on mountains. Same here it would be very difficult to leave the place specially if you are with the ones you love and you will know that both of you will have to go back on each others houses then that would be a memorable experienced for both of you. my gf is planning to come here in our country and we are planning to have a 1 week together , we are planning to spend it on a beach I am so looking forward to that day when she will come here it would be my first time to see her live and I think a week is not enough spending it on a beach

I think a trip to beach is much better in summer because you can really cool yourself out there, hang around with friends there play different games eat a lot of stuff just lay and relax near water read something interesting. and mountain trip in a cool season to enjoy the beauty of nature. I like to see snow fall and love to be there every time it snow...!!!

I hate the snow. The word means I am grounded. Where I live , even two inches and everything closes and stops. I would love to see the mountains in the fall though.The changing of the leaves would be so beautiful.

I prefer a beach trip.I like the sea and beautiful beach. Don't you think the blue sea can make you have a bright mode?When I see the blue sea,I feel so happy and relaxed.And I like to see the sky and the sea combine to be one. The sunshine and the wind in the beach are so much better than somewhere else. Even in the evening,the moon is so close to us on the beach,and the dark sky with a lot of stars is so nice.The evening beach is a very romantic place... I love the beach! I don't like to climb a mountain.

Woo. I didn't say climb a mountain. I wouldn't do that, just be in the mountains. Seeing the water doesn't effect me that way. In fact sometimes I feel sad watching the water. and I am not into all the sand. I rather be in a cabin in the mountains watching the sunset

As much as I want to be adventurous but my health wouldn't allow me because I have a mild case of Asthma so I easily get out of breath doing strainous activity ...So I enjoy in the beach more, it's more relaxing and stressful free.

I understand that the air at the beach is better for you .i would relax more in the mountains. I am not climbing the mountains . I am just sitting by them.

I can't actually climb mountains, but I spent a lot of time around some interesting onces, when I lived in Sedona Arizona, for the better part of a year. Around here though, where I am in Canada, you're more likely to find a beach than a mountain. there are mountains in Canada too, just not near where I live. LOL

Where I am, Northern Virginia, I can get to both. The mountains are about 1-2 hours away. While the beach is 3 hours away.

Wow, what a choice. I love the beach and the water but I also love the mountains and nature. I guess I'd be one of those ppl that would have to flip a coin. I'd be happy in either one, but like you, I'd hate to leave. [b]~~AT PEACE WITHIN~~ **STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS**[/b]

I prefer to spend my week in the mountain. I love the cool breeze, the peaceful environment and the singing of the birds. It feels like I have peace of mind and heart, a welcome respite for my troubled mind.

I will prefer to have a beach trip. As it's much more relaxing. My husband enjoys swimming and my son and I likes to play in the beach. So everybody will be happy. Having a mountain trip may be a little bit too tiring for my son right now. I love China

Hving been to both, I would have to say that I would love to spend a week in the mountains, or at least in a place where I can look at them each day. I love the beauty of a beach, but I love the beauty of the mountains even more. To me, mountains are just more peaceful.
