In LA you can stay in Santa Monica or Venice Beach for a walkable area. I stayed in Venice for 4 days without a car and was ok.
Manhattan and Hermosa are just south of lax.
Two of the best beach communties in u.s. easily.

Orange County has a bunch.

Hmmm, where do I even begin?

Boston has Cape Cod beaches.
New York has the Hamptons and the Jersey Shore
Philly has the Jersey Shore
DC has Maryland, Delaware, and Virginia beaches.
These are pretty far out from their respective cool cities. Not very convenient for a family wanting to be in both places at the same time...particularly without a car.

What about Savannah, GA. It shares similarities with New Orleans. It has great food, culture, walkable, historic, and has a beach.

It's mind-blowing that Miami didn't show up until late in the thread. It's a world-class city with beautiful beaches, loads of cultural amenities and a great food scene that ranges from varying Latin cuisines to it's own style (Floribbean/New World cuisine) as well as obviously great seafood and more.
