Get Into Summer Spirit with Pics of 7 Ridiculously Picturesque Sandcastles

It's just about time to bust out your best sunnies and hit the beach for some fun in the sun.

So in the spirit of summer and all the activities that come with it, we've put together a list of some of the most picturesque sandcastles from all over the world. See our picks below:


1. Cannon Beach, Oregon

This masterpiece was created by a whole family team. Each smaller castle represents a member of the family that comes together to form one big castle (Aww).

2. San Diego, California

Right on the beachfront of Hotel del Coronado in San Diego, CA comes this rad Martin Luther King Jr.-inspired castle.

3. Lexington, Kentucky

Yep, this sandcastle is in the middle of an airport, but that doesn't make it any less amazing. It represents all the cities that are a direct flight from the area. BRB, heading to Lexington real quick.

The architecture happening here is seriously unreal. It must be protected at all costs.

We're living for all the color this one has. We've definitely never seen anything like it before.  


7. Miami, Florida

Not only is this the world's tallest castle, it's definitely one of the coolest. Its level of awesome makes it fit for any princess.
