Which Camera should I Purchase?

I've been going back and forth for a month or so debating which type of Camera I want to purchase.  I'm debating between the Canon Rebel and the GoPro.
These Camera's are completely different and certainly have their pros and cons.

Canon Rebel
$400 to $1,000

Pro's
Quality Photos
Large LCD Screen
Neck Strap
Everyday Usage

Con's
Bulky- Do I really want to whip this out at a friends wedding to take a picture?
Fragile (and by Fragile, I mean this klutz can't bring it to the Beach).

GoPro
$400 to $500

Pro's
Quality Photos
Transportable
Waterproof

Con's
Not for everyday use

I just can't decide!  Steve and I are going on a few vacations this year and over the Summer we spend most of our time at the beach.  I would love to be able to just toss the GoPro in the sand or bring it in the water without worrying that it's broken.
On the other hand, I would love to have a Canon for the everyday convenience.
Do you have a Canon or a GoPro?  Which one do you think I should go with?

  1. I really want a DSLR camera, but I am way out of my league with the financial commitment that comes along with purchasing one. When you decide, let me know!!
