In another post I asked this question thinking that what I want in a beach town or community may be different than what others are searching for. What is it that makes someone want to visit the beach? What are the motivating factors that you have? From reading the views from many City Data Forum visitors to the California Forums is seems that some have preconceived notions on what is out here by the beach and what to expect when they get here. I am sure that some people are searching for something that they saw on a TV show or movie. Others may be looking for the beach that the Beach Boys sang about. For me I grew up here and it is a lifestyle that I prefer. Not exactly like that in the media, movies, TV or songs. I just know what I like.

The purpose here is to send you in the right direction if you are searching for the beach experience. Let us know that are in the know what you are looking for in a beach. Not all beaches are the same or offer the same experience. If you can offer advice on what your personal experience to beach visiting, living on, around or working near the beach please add to this thread.
