PLAY IN THE SAND!

The cohost of Travel Channel’s Sand Masters digs up some top spots to see sand sculptures that will ‘make you feel like a kid again’

1. SAN DIEGO

The U.S. Open Sandcastle Competition on San Diego’s Imperial Beach is the largest sand showdown in the country. “The competitors are mostly amateurs, so you’ll see lots of castles and mermaids,” says Sand Masters cohost Kirk Rademaker. Date: July 23-24 Info: usopensandcastle.com

2. VANCOUVER

“Sculptures can be 7- or 8-ft. tall” at the International Sand Sculpture Competition, says Rademaker. “And they’re all incredibly detailed.” Date: Aug. 20-Sept. 5 Info: pne.ca

3. AMAGANSETT, N.Y.

The Sandcastle Contest has an added perk: It happens in the Hamptons, a summer celeb haven. But even if you don’t spot a star, “looking at the sculptures gets you talking to people of all ages and cultures,” says Rademaker. Date: Aug. 6 Info: ehsandcastle.com
