Does Houston have good transit connections to the beach?

It seems many people would be happy with a beach they could acess with transit on the weekends, even if it isn't convenient for a quick dip after work.

How are the beaches in Galveston?

What beach does New Orleans have exactly? It's basically marsh land until the Louisiana coast meets the Gulf of Mexico.
Key West is walkable but has a poor rocky beach on the south side of the island (Smather's beach).
Miami Beach is walkable and has good transit even though it's buses and it can take you to the mainland in Miami which has rail options. There are other cities along the Miami metro too such as Surfside, Sunny Isles Beach, Hollywood, Ft. Lauderdale, Delray beach to mention a few.

I think that LA might be your best bet if you mean warm by no jacket weather. Its not the most reliable system, but it's ahead of the pack of the other warm cities by a good margin. You can get most anywhere in LA at all times of the day and night, but it can be a pain in the ass.
