From The Christian Science Monitor:
Quick, which city has the best beaches: New York, San Francisco, or Chicago? Forget the oceanside location of the first two, and the Windy City’s well-earned reputation for harsh weather. For at least three months of the year, give or take a cold snap or two, the broad-shouldered hog butcher and freight handler is also a beach town.
A gentle reminder that the third coast is the one with the most! (It is hard to get to a good beach in the San Francisco area, though I will admit that SoCal is so sweet!)
