Philadelphia & DC are not on the coast. Also Portland, Oregon & Jacksonville Florida. Even Houston is quite a ways from the Gulf Coastline.

South definetly. Palm trees, great cities, and great weather. Why do you think so many people vacation here. West coast is cool too, but the water is to cold for me.

Then neither is Baltimore, New Orleans, Seattle and San Francisco; the point is to categorize cities that are effectively coastal.

DUH It helps if you have at least some knowledge of geography. Please consult an Atlas before making ridiculous statements. San Francisco sits on a peninsula with the Pacific Ocean on one side & Bay on the other side. Seattle is on the Puget Sound at sea-level though isn't directly on the Pacific ocean.
