Greer Hennessy is a struggling movie location scout. Her last location shoot ended in disaster when a film crew destroyed property on an avocado grove. And Greer ended up with the blame. Now Greer has been given one more chance—a shot at finding the perfect undiscovered beach town for a big budget movie. She zeroes in on a sleepy Florida panhandle town. There's one motel, a marina, a long stretch of pristine beach and an old fishing pier with a community casino—which will be perfect for the film's climax—when the bad guys blow it up in an all-out assault on the townspeople. Greer slips into town and is ecstatic to find the last unspoilt patch of the Florida gulf coast. She takes a room at the only motel in town, and starts working her charm. However, she finds a formidable obstacle in the town mayor, Eben Thinadeaux. Eben is a born-again environmentalist who's seen huge damage done to the town by a huge paper company. The bay has only recently been re-born, a fishing industry has sprung up, and Eben has no intention of letting anybody screw with his town again. The only problem is that he finds Greer way too attractive for his own good, and knows that her motivation is in direct conflict with his. Will true love find a foothold in this small beach town before it's too late and disaster strikes? Told with Mary Kay Andrews inimitable wit and charm, the New York Times bestseller Beach Town is this year's summer beach read!

During the first half of the twentieth century, Winnipeg Beach proudly marketed itself as the Coney Island of the West. Located just north of Manitoba’s bustling capital, it drew 40,000 visitors a day and served as an important intersection between classes, ethnic communities, and perhaps most importantly, between genders. In Winnipeg Beach, Dale Barbour takes us into the heart of this turn-of-the-century resort area and introduces us to some of the people who worked, played and lived in the resort. Through photographs, interviews, and newspaper clippings he presents a lively history of this resort area and its surprising role in the evolution of local courtship and dating practices, from the commoditization of the courting experience by the Canadian Pacific Railway's “Moonlight Specials,” through the development of an elaborate amusement area that encouraged public dating, and to its eventual demise amid the moral panic over sexual behaviour during the 1950s and ‘60s.

The beach is often considered spatially homogeneous. Marine tourism, coastal zone management, and urban planning policies frequently envision the beach as a static space without recognition of the socio-culturally dynamic, and spatially complex, relationships created between a beach’s user groups. Utilizing Pacific Beach, California as a case study, the complexity of these spatial relationships is examined and a selection of geophilosophical terms are applied so as to elucidate these dynamics. A literature review of Social-Ecological Systems - emphasizing the HANS model -provides the academic context, and an exploration of Deleuze and Guattari’s concepts of smooth and striated space establishes the philosophical framework for the research. Elite interviewing is supplemented by limited participant and unobtrusive observation, as well as Participatory GIS, to qualitatively document the complex spatial relationships between locals and the beach. A history of Pacific Beach is provided to situate the community and beach socially and spatially. The smooth and striated spaces of these complex relationships develop and justify a new conceptualization of space for marine destination planning. Results are discussed within the context of marine tourism and planning, and could be further extrapolated to the fields of coastal zone management, marine spatial planning, marine shipping and transportation, marine protected areas, protected destination systems, sustainable development, and coastal resilience.
