The term “coastal” refers to more than just a certain region, aesthetic, or cuisine. It has some of the best shopping, dining, and sightseeing opportunities for the coastal fashionista. It gives the busy family ideas for summertime rituals, keepsakes, and impromptu get-togethers that they can enjoy year after year. And for the childless, it’s a yearly reminder of the simple pleasures of community and the adventure of a lifetime. The beach is a mental destination, a place to kick off your shoes and relax.
