10 Signs You’re a Beach Addict

1. You don’t understand vacationing anywhere else.

I wish all this sand was snow…. said no one ever. Skiing trips? Not for you. Mountains in the Fall? You can keep them. Big city lights? No thanks. You’ve already found your favorite vacation spot at North Coast Village on Oceanside Beach.

2. You’re phone or computer background looks like this:

Just because you can’t be at North Coast Village 24/7 doesn’t mean you can’t get a quick fix every time you use your phone or computer. If you find yourself staring at your phone and daydreaming…. don’t worry, you’re not alone.

3. You’ll take a beach workout over a gym workout any day of the week.

There’s just something about the beach that makes breaking a sweat not so bad. Plus the view alone makes it worth it. Check out this article on more information on the benefits of a beach workout.

4. When you’re close to a beach, somehow more sand ends up inside your car/purse/pockets than in the sandbox at your local park.

Subconsciously you just want to take a little bit of this happiness wherever you go. The beach doesn’t want to leave you just as much as you don’t want to leave it.

5. You’re heart actually hurts when you see photos of other people’s beach vacations on social media.

We know, we know, you shouldn’t judge or let it affect you based on what you see on social media but sometimes you can’t help but feel the envy, especially when it comes to beach vacations.

6. You can’t be friends with people who doen’t like the beach

Beach people, are my kind of people.
