    I'm in the process of planning a trip with a group of friends...trying to decide, mountains or beach? Both are appealing! This would be a late spring/early summer getaway. Right now, i'm leaning towards a beach-front house/condo in the Outer Banks.

    No contest. For me it is mountains. I never tire of their scale and majesty.

    hmmm that is a tough choice....both are great places to go....the only concern would be how warm the ocean is if you plan to swim in it... I personally would go to the mountains in spring/early summer, and the beach in late summer/early fall...

    I'd choose mountains. I know many will disagree, but once you've seen one beach you've seen them all! Also depends on when you go...can get cold in the mountains if it's too early in the season.

    Sex on the beach is usually warmer than sex in the mountains...and there's less bugs.

    If it's late spring early summer i say go to the mountains. Well, that's what I would do. I'm all about nature and the beach is not nature anymore...

    Since I live in the "Mountain State" I prefer the beach.

    I think being near the ocean is more sensual than a mountain, but grant that a mountain-lake with a nice sandstrip/beach would be nice, too. Never have been to one like that, but I'm still partial to oceans.icon_wink.gif

    If you don't like 'sand where the sun don't shine' you can always stay by the pool and just walk on the beach. icon_cool.gif

    The beach --- I love the water and the vastness of the ocean -- walking along a sandy beach at sunset is one of the most tranquil feelings I know.

    WIN!

    I often complain that Michigan lacks mountains, (ocean) beaches and palm trees.

    I guess it depends on the purpose of the vacation.
    If you want to lounge by a beach all day that's one thing (and a good weekend getaway).
    If you want to hit the mountains and hike, I'd probably take more time off.

    the beach is more of my type, but seeing the mountains once in a while is peacefull.

    How about both? Pick out a cabin near the woods, that's located in between mountain hiking trails, and a local beach? icon_smile.gif
