So this summer I want to move to a beach town and live it up for a few months. I currently reside in Houston, and well the water is pretty nasty at Galveston lol. It'd be nice to stay in a town where the beaches are white, and the water is blue.

Check out Clearwater Beach. The white sand doesn't burn your feet and the water is beautiful.

If you prefer a more laid-back "old Florida" type feel, you should check out Anna Maria Island and the beaches there. Beautiful soft snowy white sands and turquoise waters, and lots of neat places to eat on the beach or bay.

Kyle, aren't we lucky that we live in a state with so many beautiful areas to visit? I always tell my husband that we live in a place that other people have to save up all year to visit for two weeks!

Wait I just re-read your post. I dont think we have any beaches where the water is BLUE and SAND is White.

Maybe down in key West but thats a little rockey and too tropical.

Clearwater beach has white sand but Water isn't blue. Its Clear/Gray.

Maybe Sanibel Is The Closest.

Ft. Lauderdale BEach has Golden-White Sand Or Dark White and Blue Water

LOl I Dont know... Becahes Changed since I last been.

Well, maybe something was wrong with my camera? I have a photo of me on Anna Maria Island with a gorgeous warm AQUA Gulf of Mexico behind me. The pic was taken in May. When I was down there in Dec., the water was cold and bluish-gray, but the sand was still WHITE and it was still gorgeous.
