Sometimes, doing just one outdoor activity in a day isn’t enough. You want a morning surf followed by an afternoon hike, topped off by a skyline view worthy of cracking open a summit beer. There are cities all over the world where you can access both beaches and mountains, but we want places where you can wake up, catch that surf or a seaside cup of coffee, and then be in the thick of the mountain pines in time for a late brunch.
Some of these cities will even let you hit the sand and snow — for a surf then a ski — in the same day, without having to call in sick to a dinner shift. These six cities not only make this easy to do but are also the kinds of places where you likely won’t be the only person doing it.
