My Nickel’s Worth

There has always been an ongoing to debate about whether people prefer the mountains vs. the beach. I am here to tell you that I really enjoy both in different ways. Over the course of my childhood and into adulthood, I have been to both the mountains and the beach numerous times.

One of our favorite places to go over the years has been Estes Park, Colorado. The incredible scenery of the endless mountains, clear lakes and cold weather, with the smell of the pine trees in the open air. I have been to Estes Park on five or six different occasions and would love to go back someday, as it brings back so many memories from my childhood and with my family. Another excellent place to visit the mountains is Breckenridge, Colorado—known the for their snow skiing, snowboarding, and so on. My family and I visited Breckenridge during the spring break of my senior year of high school and was one of the most relaxing trips I have ever been on. As for the beach, I have been all over the country and definitely recommend several locations. I grew up going to the beach in Destin, Florida—going on vacation there numerous times and even renting out a condo during our stay. During that time we would also drive to Disney World to round out the trip. These are moments and memories that still remain with me even after several years passing. Last, but not least, is my favorite vacation of all, Maui in Hawaii. Maui is the most relaxing, peaceful place on this earth, staring out into the Pacific Ocean seeing the islands that surround it is unlike anything I can even describe. In Maui, you just forget about everything else going on in the world and find a relaxation they you did not even know existed. The sand is unlike anything else, as well as the relaxing sounds of the ocean on Kaanapali Beach in Maui.

I have nothing but good things to say about both the beach and the mountains, but one thing remains the same in each, the relaxing feeling of nature in its finest forms with not a care in the world.
