Some help:

One is in WA State
One is in Oregon
Five are in California
One is in Nevada
One is in Utah
One is in Michigan
One is in Illinois
Three are in Ohio
One is in Pennsylvania
One is in Indiana
Two are in Upstate New York
Four are in Florida

As a general rule, all of the major metro areas in question have close to one or more million people.

Three are in Ohio Cleveland, Cinci, Columbus
One is in Pennsylvania Philadelphia
One is in Indiana Chicagoland again
Two are in Upstate New York Toronto/Buffalo, ??

Yep, coasts means all forms of big water bodies, including the Great Lakes, GSL and Okeechobee. Lake Tahoe would not count since you see land in the horizon so the sun never sets in water in Tahoe.

Let's see what others have to say, but you get Philadelphia and Chicagoland (in Indiana) wrong There is a major metro area entirely located in Indiana where you can drive and approach the west coast in Michigan in a couple of hours. Also, Tallahassee is not a big metro area, the population does not even approach 400,000 people so it is mostly a medium sized metro area, which would not count in this question. Florida has four big metro areas, you got three right. Also check the other two metro areas in CA over one million.

Actually, let me make a correction- you can live in Philadelphia and approach the Erie coast in several hours, so let's count it right but there is yet another major metro area in Penn that is even closer, as close as a couple of hours.

With Phila, I was thinking more along the lines of 45 minutes from the city to the Jersey Shore or Delaware beaches, and the Jersey Shore being part of the Phila area. I didn't realize you were trying to stay entirely within the state mentioned.

The other would be Pittsburgh, which is a couple hours from Erie. Are you looking for Indy in Indianapolis?

Correct. Remember, the thread is about sunset in the beach, and no eastern city except for those close to the lakes or the gulf coast meet this criteria. I guess a sunrise is basically the same as a sunset except that sunsets are much more easier to see since you don't feel all that hectic or sleepy in the afternoon as in the mornings.

All of these cities (Chicago, Indy, the three major metro areas in Ohio, Pittsburgh, Buffalo and Rochester are close to different spots in the Great Lakes where you can see a nice sunset in the afternoon. In the case of Philadelphia, it is a bit far from the only coastline in Pennsylvania along Lake Erie, but it can be done in one day. New York City and the New England cities, I believe are too far from the Great Lakes spots. But if anyone knows best, correct me please. I know certainly most Midwestern states except Wisconsin, Missouri and Minnesota are close to the west coast of either Michigan, Pennsylvania or New York.
