We've all been to or seen a summer hotspot during the busy season, when travelers swarm beach towns and local commerce thrives. But what about during the winter, when tourists are fighting off the chill of the colder months at home with a hot toddy? What happens to those stunning summer seascapes?

Despite the desolation, however, there's still a ton of beauty. Click through the gallery above to see what I mean.
