It’s summer — and you’ve got beach getaways on the mind. How do we know? Well, over 54 million of you have been gabbing about it on social networks this past month, with a lot of the chatter revolving around sun, sand, and surf in certain choice cities. And we’ve been listening.
By canvassing sites like Tumblr, Facebook, Reddit, Twitter, WordPress, and YouTube, and cross-referencing with travel sites like TripAdvisor, Adobe Digital Index (using Adobe Social) helped us pinpoint the top ten buzziest beaches in the United States.
See below to find out what you — and all your friends — have been talking about. And then get vacationing, already!
No. 10 — Hilton Head, South Carolina
Nestled along the South Carolina coast, this boot-shaped sea island is a paradise for both beach and golf lovers, as well as foodies and those that prefer to burn the calories off on the water after. Average daily temps hover in the high 80s. And there’s a famous lighthouse. Perfect.
