These Are The Best Seaside Towns In The US For A Scenic Break

Carmel-by-the-Sea, California

A stroll around Carmel-by-the-Sea will quickly reveal that it's not your typical West Coast surf town. With thatched cottages like something out of a British village.

Orange Beach, Alabama

It might be hard to believe that this Caribbean-like beach is in Alabama, but it's one of the most popular destinations on the state's Gulf Coast.

Camden, Maine

Nicknamed the jewel of the Maine coast, Camden is a quintessential seaside town with a charming harbor, an old lighthouse, jagged.

San Clemente, California

San Clemente is a dreamy beach destination. Built in the 1920s as a Spanish village by the sea, the place used to be a major hub.

Ketchikan, Alaska

In the far south of the USA’s most northerly state is Ketchikan, centered on a small cluster of colorful clapboard stilt houses perched over Ketchikan Creek. 

Beaufort, North Carolina

Beaufort is a little town in coastal North Carolina with buckets of Southern charm, and no visit here is complete without a stroll along the town’s iconic Front Street. 

 Bar Harbor, Maine

Whether you want to kick back and relax in the picturesque setting of Bar Harbor, or you're looking to explore Acadia National Park.
