I have been to the Pacific, Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic. I like them all for specific reasons. I have been to Myrtle beach which is fun and there is alot to do there, Virgina beach is navy town and the water and beach is dirty not one of my favorites. Clearwater in the Gulf when i went wasn't very clear but the beach was nice witha few good looking guys. Pacific Ocean is just frickin cold and i can't see why anyone would want to swim there without a wetsuit on.
