If you go back and read the title, it says that it is including rivers and lakes.

This thread is kinda confusing to me in regards to everyones definition of "landlocked". I would think a city like San Francisco would be considered landlocked simply because it's sits on a peninsula and it's approximately 13 X 9 miles in area and can only really grow upwardly instead of out because 3 sides of it are surrounded by water. This thread is referring to city proper not metro areas, right? Besides, SF shares it's metro area with 2 other major cities... I dunno, maybe Im missing something

Hahaha.

Turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico at the Panhandle trump the Atlantic Ocean any day of the week and twice on Sundays. BTW, why is Tallahassee FL even on this list?

It's pretty clear that the most landlocked MAJOR U.S. city is Denver. However, for mountain recreation aficionados who don't need a salt-water body of water nearby, they could survive. The Platte River going through Denver is pretty dismal.

Julian H, a landlocked city is a city whose limits does not border a large body of water, And all I know is that the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplotian area is the biggest Landlocked metroplex in the USA, I thought Pheonix was the largest landlocked city? Or was it the largest city without any bodies of water? Meh I will Google that later lol
