Beach Maniac Publisher Bill Hurley is a lifelong beach enthusiast who plans virtually every vacation around sun, sand and warmth. He spends most of his time in Wisconsin, where he was born and raised,  but can’t get enough of Florida, the Caribbean, Mexico and Hawaii. That’s why he is building this site as a home for everyone who, like him, loves the feel of the sand between their toes. By day, Bill is a journalist, website editor and social media strategist. By night (and weekends and vacations) he is a devoted Beach Maniac.

Beach Maniac Co-Publisher Diane Hurley loves the beach lifestyle, especially the Caribbean, Hawaii, Florida and Mexico. She and Bill have traveled throughout these regions and collected many megabytes of photos and countless memories. They love calm, clear waters and a nice hotel or cruise ship for spending the night. Diane is always up for an adventure, from zip-lining to jungle excursions to jeep safaris to snorkeling. But she’s also up for relaxing in a lounge chair on a sandy beach. When Diane isn’t working as a nurse or vacationing at the beach, she spends her time with family and friends and sharing her stories on Facebook.
