True, but OP clearly means ocean shoreline, just look at the options and roll with it. There have been plenty of "shoreline" and "beach" threads including Great Lakes region + oceanic coasts already.

The Louisiana Coastline has a lot of marsh, swamps, and wetlands...and thus isn't as aesthetcially pleasing as the others I mentioned

While I do admit that New Hampshire has some nice looking coastline, its mere 18 miles of it doesn't quite make for a memorable stretch.

Had to chuckle......LAKElines Hain't ha Word. Like hain't isn't. LOL.
But here is the definition of......COASTLINE..
by Merriman-Webster Dictionary

--A LINE THAT FORMS THE BOUNDARY BETWEEN THE LAND AND THE ...OCEAN OR A LAKE.

by the Free Dictionary .....COAST..

--The line or zone where the land meets the sea or SOME OTHER LARGE EXPANSE OF WATER.

THE GREAT LAKES OF THE US AND CANADA DO HAVE A OFFICIAL COASTLINE<<<<<<As they are a LARGE EXPANSE OF WATER

I merely added my thoughts on North Americas OTHER COASTLINE and CHICAGO'S COASTLINE IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES.

I'm honestly surprised that New York does not have more votes. New York always gets votes in a lot of polls because it's New York (or really, it has New York City within its borders) the prestige alone usually makes people vote for it. Long Island's coast is very nice. The Hamptons is a stretch of coast probably internationally known - maybe it's too pretentious and unrelatable for people?

I really think that the only reason people aren't voting for Alaska more is that they haven't been there. Alaska has a longer coastline than any of the other states combined and possibly the most dramatic coastline in the world.

Because the water is never swimmable.
