WITH ITS ENVIABLE LOCATION at the head of Dublin Bay on the Irish Sea, framed by the Wicklow Mountains beyond and the River Liffey running through it, there’s little wonder Dublin draws so many visitors. In fact, more than 6.3 million people visited in 2018. For a city with a population of 1.3 million and a country of just more than 4.9 million, that’s quite a number of people to welcome to the Emerald Isle.
WITH 1,200 MILES OF SANDY BEACHES throughout the Sunshine State, plenty could qualify as the best in Florida. Of course, the best beaches can be as different as the beach goers choosing their next destinations. On the Gulf Coast, travelers enjoy calm waters and sugar-white, powder-soft sand, while across the state rollicking waves and gold-flecked beaches stretch along the Atlantic Ocean. Rather than choosing just one beach to represent the entire state, we divide Florida geographically and offer these suggestions for your next seaside getaway.
