The mountains in Western North Carolina!!! I love it there! Or the mountains in Tennessee. I hate the beach, I don't like being in sun, it's too hot. I go to the mountains to escape the nasty heat and feel cool fresh air.

True. Not much imagination required during a beach vacation.

Definantly the mountains to me, the beach is a 15min drive and the mountains are a 2 hour drive. Mountains are way more scenic than a beach, thats what matters for me.

Mountains are the place I feel most content and at ease, where all the worries of life melt away. I cannot get enough of them, I grew up in the rockies, and am about to move 1500+ miles for one reason: to live near mountains once more. I've moved away several times for short periods for the career, and each time I so long for them I always come back. My mind is now made up, I will never leave them again.

I live to backpack in them, hike in them, camp in them, and of course mountain climb. I love feeling small and insignificant, and nowhere else do I get that feeling as much as when in the rockies. I really appreciate the grandeur and majesty of the rockies. Already have several dozen trips for this summer planned! Can't wait!

Default Live at the beach, vacation in the mountains

I love the beach but I live 10 mins from gorgeous beaches. I can do the beach anytime (been twice in the last week). So when we get away and it is not a Disney vacation or a family visit, watch out smokies, here we come. We were there in 2012, and I miss it already.

Mountain man here. If I had my druthers I'd live in a cave deep in the mountains. Sand and water get's boring after awhile.

agreed, I love the beach if you are in a hotel and can simply watch the ocean, but sand and I are enemies. We have a daughter living in the Orlando area, they take several vacations a year and almost always to the beach. It might be out of the country, but it is still a beach.

For us, it is a cruise, and yes, then beach in included, but other than cruising, we want the clear, fresh air of the mountains: love fall in the mountains.
