When they finish the park on Governor's Island it will be one of the, if not the most spectacular waterfronts in the world. You'll have views of inner New York harbor, the Statue of Liberty and the lower Manhattan skyline all from an elegant park. They are also considering a summer home for the New York Philharmonic and other performing institutions.

The waterfront cities of the Gulf and East Coast are full of history since the days of the trade ships from Europe and the Caribbean. Many of these old port cities have beautiful historic waterfront areas that are great for a vacation or a place to shop and walk around, eat…etc. Two of my favorite on the East Coast are Baltimore and Miami.

The Inner Harbor in Baltimore is a great place for historic sightseeing, shopping…etc and has a beautiful waterfront:



Tall Ships Week:








If you want a tropical flavor on the East Coast…head to the Miami waterfront. With cruise ships from all over the world coming in/going out…cargo ships from South America and the Caribbean…millions of yachts coming and going…and the carnival like atmosphere of Bayside Market Place…the waterfront in Miami is America’s version of tropical Rio:








Bayside Market Place...shop till you drop in the tropics - lol:





Night falls on the Atlantic coast...

The East Coast is full of waterfront cities...but the little ones are just as interesting as the big ones like Baltimore and Miami.

I love Newport, Rhode Island:










...and Charleston, South Carolina:








and don't forget Atlantic City, New Jersey:
