Best US City Beaches (PHOTOS)

While sand and the city might not seem like the best match for a day at the beach, the United States' shorelines offer incredible beaches nestled within some of the country's most prominent cities. Inspired by "No Impact Man" Colin Beavan and wife Michelle Conlin's trip to Fort Tilden beach in their upcoming eco-documentary, HuffPost Green decided to create our lineup of the best beaches in US cities to get you ready for labor day. Of course, we didn't get them all, so please share your favorite seaside urban getaways with us.

Here's how it works:

Hit the participate button, leave your description and mark the area of your favorite beach (remember: within at least a moderately sized city) by searching for an address in the box on the top right of the map, upload your photo and hit submit. Thank you!
