The 10 Best Beaches For Families

PENNINGTON, N.J., June 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- According to a recent survey* from Family Vacation Critic®  ( www.familyvacationcritic.com), an online family travel planning guide, nearly half of all families reported that the most important factor in choosing a beach to visit with kids is the cleanliness of the beach and its waters. The second most important factor is safe waters with a lifeguard on duty, followed closely by accommodations within walking distance.

"Families want to know that the beaches they're visiting are safe for their kids – they're looking for clean beaches to play on, and safe waters for young swimmers," says Lissa Poirot, executive editor of Family Vacation Critic. "At the same time, convenience also plays a big role in the decision-making process – over a third of respondents said that they look for beaches that are close to where they're staying and have nearby facilities and entertainment options."

With those factors in mind, Family Vacation Critic has named the 10 Best Beaches for Families. The beaches were chosen by the site's editors, based on the features most important to families -- cleanliness, safe waters, and nearby restrooms, restaurants and entertainment.
