I to be looking into an inexpensive beach expedition for mine boyfriend and also I this summer. I have actually done Mrtyle many times and would prefer to walk somplace various this year. Does anyone have any type of suggestions on a place for us to go? We space right around 30, no kids, therefore would favor a funny boardwalk/party form atmosphere but also the possibility to relax and spend time together. We will most likely only have the ability to go for a lengthy weekend 4-5 days, so a much shorter drive is preferred. Any suggestions would certainly be great!

You can look into the Rehoboth,Delaware/Ocean City, Maryland areas. Rehoboth is more of a family members town with a tiny but funny boardwalk, numerous nice restaurants, a lot of smaller hotels and B&B's. S City is more lively with larger hotels, a long energetic boardwalk. Since the beaches deserve to vary native season come season, ns would check with the forums because that those locations to watch what the winter storms have done this year.

You are watching: What is the closest beach to pittsburgh pa

Both are a day's drive from Pittsburgh - I supplied to carry out Rehoboth in 8/9 hours, then found a (complicated but worthwhile) faster way that reduced that to 6/7, ocean City is about a half hour further.

What are you spring to spend on lodging? I'm a pan of the external Banks, NC, and as much as I'm concerned doesn't break the bank. There room plenty of very good restaurants that aren't any an ext expensive than an Applebees and also reasonably priced activities. If you stay in the Nags Head/Kitty Hawk/Kill adversary Hills area, you'd it is in closest to the bulk of locations to eat and also things come do.

Although I like SurfsideBeach/MyrtleBeach better, I have gone to Virgina Beach numerous times... The nice thing around VB is the proximity to Williamsburg.

I've stayed at the vacation Inn North because that a long weekend and it to be nice.

Oddly enough, ns actually found Va coast to be a little more expensive 보다 Myrtle during peak season, I'd guess since there are so many an ext hotels in Myrtle. Granted, ns was specifically in search of oceanfront properties and also an oceanfront room. I do like the idea of gift close to Williamsburg (did that pilgrimage with VB in 2010). Still would choose to know exactly how much the OP desires to spend on lodging. That would really assist direct the advice.

How around Presque Isle coast at Lake Erie? an extremely close (
3 hrs drive), and also surprisingly clean, uncrowded beaches. Granted, they don't have a genuine Boardwalk, yet the town of Erie has a most youth-oriented restaurants and also bars for your evening entertainment, and there is a WaterRides Park and Amusement Park top top the means from Erie come the Presque Isle Beach.

You deserve to take boat rides the end on the lake, fly kites top top the Beach and ride bikes through the State Park. There is likewise a pretty Vineyard nation nearby, just w/i a few miles of the town, i m sorry is really an enjoyable method to pass a day. There space a few museums in town, the Frigate Niagra is stationed here, and also there is additionally a huge summer Music and Arts Festival each year at the end of June.

A yes, really nice hotel, appropriate on the bay, is the Sheraton Bayfront through stunning see of the just (or the Marina), and also a good Downtown location. I recognize people always want to go to the s Beaches, but when you are brief on time Presque Isle is a pleasant, convenient and also not too expensive alternative.

Totally agree v Evan about Presque Isle. I disagree through his statement around uncrowded. More than 4 million world visit the park annually...and depending upon what weekend...it may be very crowded! been to myrtle, virginia, ocean city, etc. As fun as these places are, they're dumps contrasted to the herbal beauty the Presque island beaches.

We love the external banks. Go double a year. No boardwalk though, yet it's well priced and relaxing. Doesn't seem like what you're spring for, however figured I'd litter it the end there.

We also like going to Atlantic City. It's commonly cheap to stay in a casino, and also the boardwalk is very lively in the summer months. The beach is quite too, although us really haven't spent all that lot time on it. There isn't a ton to carry out if friend don't gamble, yet you might surely invest a few days over there relaxing on the beach/walking the boardwalk. No to many beach towns can you obtain a hotel the price you deserve to in one AC casino hotel. AC it s okay a bad rap of gift dirty/unsafe, yet as countless times together we've been there we've love it and also felt for sure (never went off the boardwalk though).

I've been to VA beach a pair times, and also don't reap it. Boardwalk isn't fun due to the fact that the shops and most restaurants room on the street, on the various other side that the hotels. Boardwalk loses its luster IMO.
