America's Love Affair with the Beach - Infographic

I have to admit, I am a total beach girl...especially when it comes to the south New Jersey shore. Matter of fact, hubby and I travel down to Ocean City, Stone Harbor, Wildwood, Avalon and Cape May several times every year. We are hoping to fully retire and live along the coast in about 8 years.

Here is a fun fact: Did you know that 39% of the US population lives in coastal counties, and over the past decades the population has been heading for the coasts? To celebrate American's love affair with the beach, OCNJ put together an infographic that reveals these facts and others. Take a look at it below.

We love the beach for so many reasons! We love to sit on the beach to relax, play in the water, dine on great seafood and we just love the coastal culture. There is always something fun going on especially during the 'tourist' season.

So, please tell us what attracts you to the beach? What kind of things do you enjoy doing while visiting or living on one of our country's beautiful coastlines? We would love to hear about it!
