Having lived in Washington DC for 4 years I visited Baltimore several times and enjoyed the waterfront development. But I don't recall any beaches in Baltimore.

I've only seen the Hamptons on TV, and it is absolutely beautiful. We have beach towns like that up and down the California Coast. From Corona Del Mar to Santa Barbara, and Pismo Beach to Monterey.

Outside the big cites of the east coast there are some very beautiful beach communities. I've been to New York's Fired Island and Cherry Grove. During the summer months, it doesn't get much better than that. It's a great escape from the hustle and bustle of NYC.

In LA and San Diego, the populace enjoy their beaches year round. In LA we have the famous Venice Beach Boardwalk which travels along the Pacific Ocean for several miles of walking and biking.
I was just including the major cities in the mid-Atlantic that are not on the ocean. No there are no real beaches in Baltimore where you can actually get into the water, I brought it up because it has imported sand with beach activities to partake in as if you are on a real beach. It'll be hard to find beach volleyball, or anything like The Sandlot in the core of other major mid-Atlantic cities near the water that are not already on the ocean. They just opened The Sandlot in Harbor Point this month and its great its going to be the new best place to watch the fireworks. None of the mid-Atlantic beaches hold a candle to any of Southern California beaches would like to visit someday.

Default Why is LA and California Fake?

Economically the state is set up to keep average wage earners from living comfortably. Upper social classes are ruling. Homes, Apartments, and other necessities are way over-priced with no efforts to change this.

It's also happening in other states; but, mainly in large urban areas. Unfortunately it appears to be happening in all areas of California.

Even many of the wealthy often move out of the state once they retire or careers slow down.

"Fake" people and cities. I hear people call people fake or the city of Los Angeles fake in order to disparage them. But persona or personality means one's presentation to the world. Which means everyone is "fake" as how you present yourself to others depends on the context of the situation. So the only thing "fake" about any of us is our personality. As for cities all cities do what they can to present themselves in the best manner possible, meaning they are all "fake".

What place is going to come out with a list of negatives to describe itself?

There is no worse city in America to live in (if you're a guy) than Los Mangeles. It has, bar none, the flakiest women of any city in America. This thread confirms it:

To be fair, all of the coastal California metros are awful for men. LA has flaky star-chasers, SD has 16,678 military bases, and SF has 13th wave feminism. Sacramento is the only large CA city that is good for men.

They should really change the phrase "go west young man" to "go west young woman".
