This time of year, it’s hard not to fantasize about long walks on sandy beaches in sunny locales. If you’re looking to escape the snow and enjoy a scenic stroll with your toes in the sand as the water laps at your feet, we have rounded up 10 bucket list destinations.
TEN MILE BEACH
Mendocino County, California
If you are looking for sweeping Pacific Ocean views in Northern California, the Ten Mile Beach Trail is the place for you. Although it’s not as warm as SoCal beaches, the trail hugs the coastline and will take you through sand dunes. This trail used to be a lumber road, so it’s a slice of Mendocino County history. An added bonus? From December to April, you can spot Pacific gray whales as they migrate.
