Infographic on Top 10 US Beaches Plus Fun Facts

It’s officially summer which means the beaches are everyone’s number one destination. There’s more than just sun and sand if you want a successful family excursion to the beach. Of course this all depends on your beach style.

What’s your favorite thing to do at the beach? Is it to swim, layout, read, walk, shell, drink margaritas, watersports, sand sports, or maybe you just like to round up as many of your friends and family as possible and just plain old kick it.

Well,  you aren’t alone, 70% of people love to walk along the beach; 65% love to swim; 53% love to either read or sunbathe and 48% reportedly love to nap. There is something magical about being at the beach— feeling the breeze on your face and curling your toes in the sand. Life doesn’t have to always be so hectic.

Are you planning on heading to the beach this summer? Between the string of beaches along the Atlantic, Pacific and Gulf coasts, there are plenty of spots to check out. Just look at the infographic to see which 10 beaches are the most popular within the U.S. Also see some surprising facts behind the bikini—the most popular swimsuit since the 1950s. For instance, it was named after the site of the atomic bomb testing. Something big came from something so small…literally.


When you go to the beach, enjoy it fully without a worry. When you leave your home, know ADT monitoring helps keep your home protected 24 hours a day; 7 days a week. Be free to live life unafraid. Home security protection helps make that happen.
