BEAT THE HEAT BY TAKING YOUR MINI TO THESE BEAUTIFUL BEACHES
The sun held high in the sky, the salty scent of the ocean over the horizon and the air blowing past as you cruise down the highway in your MINI Convertible. What could be more perfect for a summer day? If you’re eager to take a dip in the ocean, relax under a beach umbrella with a good book or just feel the sand between your toes, you’ll want to hop into your MINI and hit one of these incredible beaches.
Myrtle Beach and the Grand Strand (South Carolina)
One of America’s premier vacation destinations, Myrtle Beach is the crown jewel of the 60-mile Grand Strand. It’s that location within the stretch of beaches running from Little River to Georgetown that makes a visit so brilliant — even in peak season when the sands are at their most crowded, you’ve got plenty of room to pick out a prime spot. If you manage a spot at Myrtle Beach proper, you can take advantage of great restaurants, beachfront entertainment and the legendary Myrtle Beach SkyWheel and boardwalk. Wherever you pull up, the sunsets on Myrtle Beach are positively gorgeous.
San Diego (California)
With 80 miles of clean coastline ripe for ocean-gazing, swimming and surfing, it’s a wonder San Diego isn’t unofficially known as Sand Diego. U.S. News & World Report’s Travel Guide ranks San Diego in its top 10 beaches in the United States and No. 1 on its list of Best Family Spring Break Destinations, calling out favorites like Mission Beach, Pacific Beach and Coronado Beach as being among the top places to visit. When you’ve had your fill of sun and surf, San Diego offers abundant cuisine, entertainment and nightlife opportunities, making it a great getaway spot all around.
Coast Guard Beach (Massachusetts)
Cape Cod has long been a favorite destination getaway for beachgoers the world over thanks to the coolness of its waters and serenity of its sands. Coast Guard Beach in Eastham is routinely regarded as one of the very best beaches in America —Stephen Leatherman, the Florida International University coastal scientist best known by the moniker Dr. Beach, named it to his top 10 beaches list for 2019. Dr. Beach praises Coast Guard Beach for its views of the Nauset Spit barrier and bay and mild ocean temperatures.
Whether you prefer the East or West Coast, New England or the Pacific Northwest, there are abundant beaches to explore throughout the United States. Your MINI is the ideal companion for getting you there, helping put you in the spirit of freedom and frivolity with its world-famous, go-kart handling and offering plenty of room for your towels and sunscreen.
