Plan your summer vacation with our annual list of the best beaches for families.
Nothing says summer like a trip to the beach, especially for families. But not every beach caters to the unique needs of those traveling with children. That’s why each year, we choose the best of the best beaches for families specifically, ensuring each U.S. beach that makes our list offers the important amenities families seek—lifeguard protection, easy access to restrooms and showers, and local attractions, restaurants and hotels (because yes, everyone will need a break from the sand and surf at some point). These are the best family beaches for 2019.
