5 Underrated Beach Towns In America, According To TripAdvisor Users


Now that it’s officially summer, we’re ready for a permanent state of vacation. But where oh where should we go?

We asked our friends over at TripAdvisor to poll their users about their summer beach going habits, their favorite underrated American beach towns and what they look for in a beach town to get a sense of where they’ll be sunning themselves this season.

Over 1,800 people responded to our questions. Here’s what we know from them:

  • The beach is the biggest draw when choosing a destination.

  • People really like the beaches in Florida and Oregon and think we’re missing out.

Without further ado, here are the 5 beach towns that TripAdvisor members think we’re missing out on…and why you should go there, too.
