How to write an opinion essay

Clearly, there are many places you can go if you want to take a vacation. The beach and mountains are just a couple, but given these choices, I would choose the mountains. Going to the mountains would let me be close to nature, would not have as many people, and would give me the chance to get some good exercise. I think the most important part of a vacation is being able to relax. So, I feel like the mountains would be the most relaxing place for me to go.
