Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

How about Never, because I couldn't care less about beaches.

I prefer the beach in winter. Beautiful choppy water and nearly no one around.

As soon as the red tide on the west coast of Florida goes away and the sharks on the east coast head on north.

No beach for me. Hate all that sand, the traffic, oh and the nasty water.

Heading to FL in April so we have been getting ready.

Normally around our house we start thinking about the beach when the lake thaws because we have to start working on getting the community beach ready for the season.

If you ever wonder why people that live in communities that have private beaches are real jerks about tossing people that are not supposed to be there, it has a lot to do with the fact that they probably do more work to maintain that beach than they do to maintain their own yard.

That's like 50 degrees in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan!

Love the beach, nothing like sitting under an umbrella for shade with a cold adult beverage in hand, watching the world go by

This is refreshing. All my life, people have always acted like I was the only person on the face of the earth that hated the beach. I like warm weather, love to swim, and water parks are awesome. But the beach? No thanks.

I personally like the beach, mainly because I seldom ever get to go to one. But I can totally understand why some people strongly dislike being at the beach...

The only good beach is one that I step off onto a good layer of ice to catch muskie. I'll take my weather in the teens, thank you.

14% isn't that unreasonable. It depends on one's definition of "at". Most of the population of the states lives on the coasts, so how close to the water is a subjective call. I consider myself part of the 14%, but my house is roughly a mile inland. I run to and along the beach every week though, so it feels like my home.

I love the beach. I can't imagine ever living more than a mile away from the good ol' salt water. I love the sound of the fog horn, the smell of salt in the air. Yep, I love the beach.

Beaches are alright and I wouldn't mind going for a walk on one every now and then. But I live in the middle of Ohio so that ain't happening. Plus I'm a high risk for skin cancer. I have to so slather my skin it gets yucky.

Love to walk the beach, but don't swim in the ocean anymore and hate smothering myself in suntan lotion only to have sand and salt spray stuck to it. And forget about eating at the beach. Have you ever been to one that wasn't windy? Sand gets into everything.

Answer: I don't start to think about the beach, ever.

Also never. I'm of the ginger, bespeckled persuasion, so I burn at the mere thought of sunshine. And the sand gets everywhere, even when you're fully clothed.

Approximately 1x/year when invited to the obligatory holiday beach event for [insert national holiday here]. Give me mountains forests & lakes any day.
