I sometimes forget that people have never experienced the beach. If you're someone who's never been pounded into the sand by a wave, stung by a jellyfish, experienced hypothermia or sucked out by a riptide, you definitely want to get your ass to the Pacific Coast because sand, sun and water does not a beach make!
A little charming, I admit:
I have to give Canadians props for this. Though our beaches are better, we definitely don't have waterslides this awesome in California!!!:
