The beach is synonymous with summer. And while everyone has their favorite stretch of coastline that they look forward to visiting each year, it's that reason why no beachfront destination stands alone as the best.

I say that despite a recent survey conducted by recreational information hub Tipspoke that found Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, to be America's favorite beach. Not to disparage one of the U.S.'s most beloved summer vacation destinations, but Myrtle Beach was only singled out by 62 of 1,000 survey respondents.
