If you like only warm water yes. But only in the warmer months.

The big "however" though is that the water on all the Charleston area beaches looks like crap. I've never seen such muddy brown water that was supposed to be an ocean. It looked exactly like murky river water to me. Some people wouldn't even go in due to the murkiness and color. You can't see more than an inch or two into the water. It is awful and never understood why people think these beaches are nice.

People still have that same image of Miami Beach as a retirement destination? Miami Beach in 2013 is more tattoo parlors, yoga studios, and nightclubs, rather than Bagel's, Bakery's, and Shuffleboard.

Honolulu in 2017 opens its new elevated rail line. It's a very dense city with some good walkable areas.

^^^What he said. Miami doesn't really have good public transit, but it's getting better and is very walkable. Key West is also another good option. Since it's so small, there's no real need to drive.

Thank you for your help...
My search continues. Maybe I'll try a different question.

LA doesn't have very warm swimming water, contrary to popular belief. Last time I was there at Huntington in the summer I believe the water temps were in the 60s?? Not sure if OP would consider that warm. San Diego is roughly the same water temperature as well.

For OP, I'd agree with the other suggestions in Florida and Hawaii.

I know it's not exactly "ocean city", but what about New Orleans?

. Thank you and thanks to everyone helping me find my way to a new place. I made a new thread with different questions. (Not requiring a beach town)
